This is one of O'Casey's finest plays. It is tragedy set in a tenement during the 1916 rising. The inhabitants of these tenements and there were many in Dublin, lived in abject poverty. Yet they maintained a quiet dignity and sense of humour . They also looked out for each as much as they could, despite rivalries between the various characters in the play. It is the first play I had ever seen. It was staged in the Abbey Theatre around 1970. I would urge people to read the play, but better still, to see a production on stage. No other play invokes the desperation and hopes of poor Dubliners during the 1916 rising. If you enjoyed reading this play, I would urge you to read Juno and the Paycock. This play, also written by O'Casey, is also set in a Dublin tenement during the Irish civil war.
