After being introduced to his work by an inspirational teacher in secondary school, I’ve always loved Tom Murphy 's work and now he has passed away aged 83. He was remarkably prolific and wrote outstandingly, reflecting actual Irish society. Which of course led to the usual establishment screaming Mary’s decrying his work, much like the Abbey with Whistle in the Dark.
I loved Conversations on a Homecoming.
A great loss.

You should know us poetic types are terribly sensitive and aspersions on our pretensions are treated with mild disdain.
You uncouth skangar.

Fitzy sounds fucking cool, like a character from a Tom Murphy play.

The Gigli Concert, the best experience of theatre I probably ever had. The stage was nearly humming, like an energy coming off it.
