THE LAMENT FOR ARTHUR CLEARY (REVOLUTIONARY TEXTS)
Revolutionary Texts a series of reading which aim to draw attention to plays from the late 1980s and 1990s, that are political in content and experimental in form which might be unfamiliar to our younger audience members. Four such plays will be given public readings and directed by some of Ireland’s best emerging talent.
The Lament For Authur Cleary is an examination of Ireland in the 1980s – its moneylenders, its unemployment, its exhausting and debilitating emigration.
