Desolate Heaven in Methuen Drama's Irish Anthology

Book cover of Contemporary Irish Plays

Methuen Drama’s Contemporary Irish Plays,  published by Bloomsbury, showcases the new drama that has emerged since 2008. Featuring a blend of established and emerging writers, the anthology shows how Irish writers are embracing new methods of theatre-making to explore exciting new themes – while also finding new ways to come to terms with the legacies of the Troubles and the Celtic Tiger.

“A dark Irish fairytale … there are moments to make your heart sing … the writing is fresh and true-it nibbles and gnaws at the heart.” – Lyn Gardner, The Guardian on Desolate Heaven
