Example text

Ee', is a minor O'Casey vignette of vintage dye. The Shadow rif a Gunman 31 The play's premiere was in Dublin at the Abbey Theatre on 12 April 1923, directed by Lennox Robinson. Arthur Shields played Davoren, F. J. McCormick played Shields and Gertrude Murphy played Minnie. Packed houses in the finish ensured a re-run in August of the same year. Lady Gregory's judgement was that it was an 'immense success, beautifully acted, all the political points taken up with delight'. Thereafter, in the Irish capital, there were many presentations.

In the play the impact is shown on two worker families, on two mothers each of whom has lost a son; and, if there be a message in the play, I imagine it to be that a Civil War should be waged only for a deep and great cause, like the overthrow of tax paid without representation that evoked the American War of Independence, the overthrow of Feudalism as in the French Revolution, and the establishment of political and economic rule and ownership by the people as in the October Revolution of the Soviets.

ADOLPHUS GRIGSON: There's some of them in this house think that Grigson was born in a bottle. DAVOREN (to SEUMAs): A most appropriate place for him to be born in. MRS GRIGSON: Come on down to bed, now, an' you can talk about them in the mornin'. ADOLPHUS: I'll talk about them, now; do you think I'm afraid of them? Dolph us Grigson's afraid av nothin', creepin' or walkin',- if there's any one in the house thinks he's fit to take a fall out av Adolphus Grigson, he's here - a man; they'll find that Grigson's no soft thing.
