New Plays from the Abbey Theatre free pdf The selected plays show the extraordinary variety of Irish drama today as well as the brilliance of Irish playwrights, both seasoned veterans and those beginning to build reputations on the stages of the world's premier national theatre, The Abbey. The first play by award-winning playwright Michael Harding, "Sour Grapes", explores the taboos of seminary life including paedophilia and homosexuality. Thomas Kilroy's "The Secret Fall of Constance Wilde" tells the historical drama of the marriage of Constance to Oscar Wilde and recounts the tragedy that was her marriage and life. Interlocking lives of a varied group of eight morally adrift young Dublin women and men, Alex Johnston's dramatic comedy "Melonfarmer" illuminates the difficulty of human communication in a fast-paced urban society. "By the Bog of Cats" by Marina Carr completes the volume in an intense, poetic tragedy of brutal Irish rural-Midlands life in which money and land outweigh all other values.
