Sean O'Casey

Description:

Sean O'Casey (1880-1964) was one of Ireland's most celebrated modern dramatists. The internationally acclaimed productions of his plays, including Juno and the Peacock and The Plough and the Stars, helped launch the Abbey Theatre as a preeminent stage for world drama, and his realistic depiction of the struggles of Ireland for independence were a defining characteristic of the Irish Literary Revival.
