This blog is written by Patrick Lonergan, Professor of Drama and Theatre Studies at NUI Galway. All opinions are my own. This blog is mostly about Irish theatre, and is intended as an informal, non-scholarly discussion of that subject. I also occasionally discuss other topics. I’m interested in starting conversations rather than offering any definitive views on anything.
So the work that’s presented here is not intended to be seen as formal academic criticism; nor is this a site for or of theatre reviews. While I welcome and appreciate links and discussion, I’d encourage people to double check any information that I present here before quoting it.
The title of the blog is inspired by Owen McCafferty’s play of the (mostly) same name from 2003.
The blog was mostly on hiatus from 2014 to 2017.
