Abstract

This is a book review of The Theatre and Films of Conor McPherson: Conspicuous Communities by Eamonn Jordan and Irish Drama and Theatre Since 1950 by Patrick Lonergan. It argues that they each contribute to the extension of the field of Irish theatre scholarship, drawing both on new and original primary research and revisiting existing scholarship. They succeed in establishing both an overarching narrative and insights new to those already immersed in Irish theatre scholarship, while making both accessible to a readership that might be coming to this material for the first time.
