Have you ever heard of?
If you are an Irish Theatrist, or a Korean theatrist, you may know about her.
She is a playwright, producer, and a patron, at the dawn of Irish theatre.
She supported various Irish playwrights to make them go famous.
She built the first National Theatre in Dublin, for Irish people, when Ireland was still under British Empire’s control.
She herself wrote many plays to attract the Irish common audience, when theatre was an aristocratic pleasure.
She has been rather long forgotten or hidden behind big Irish names such as WB Yeats, but nowadays, possibly because of BREXIT and recent gender-equal movements, more light is put on her.
I am directing (rehearsing) some her best short plays in Japan.
The Workhouse Ward, and The Rising of The Moon.
The actors are great and understand the background situation of Ireland and Britain at the turn of the 20th century.
If you are interested in watching the streaming (in Japanese), contact me.
