The Wit and Wisdom of Modern Irish Playwrights
Join Cynthia Meier for an exploration of the unique voice of contemporary Irish playwrights. We’ll begin with John Millington Synge’s Playboy of the Western World. Our journey of discovery will continue with Sean O’Casey and Juno and the Paycock and Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot. We’ll conclude with Conor McPherson’s The Seafarer. Each class session will include information about the playwright, readings of selected scenes and discussion. We’ll seek to identify the particular brilliance of modern Irish writers as they employ a carefully crafted blend of poignancy, humor and insight to show us the intricacies of the human experience.
