"Marina Carr: Plays 1" introduces the work of a major new voice in playwrighting. Carr has been praised for the beauty and uniqueness of her language, was cited by "The Independent" as "a hugely valuable dramatic voice," and has even been compared to Eugene O'Neill. A prominent voice in British letters who has been building momentum in the United States for the past decade, Carr's four critically acclaimed works are gathered together here for the first time.

"Low in the Dark" "Patricia Coughlan" "By the Bog of Cats" "The Mai" "One of the most exciting, new and absolutely original aspects of Carr's writing is the manner in which the sexism of language and religious imagery is exposed . . . A playwright to be watched." --The Sunday Tribune on Low in the Dark"A play of precocious maturity and accomplishment." --The Irish Times on Patricia Coughlan"A piece of poetic realism steeped in the past . . . an extraordinary ability to move between the mythic and the real." --The Guardian on the Bog of Cats"The writing is at once gentle and raucous . . . capable of articulating deep-seated woes and resentments in a manner you rarely find outside Eugene O'Neill." --The Observer on The Mai One of the most exciting, new and absolutely original aspects of Carr's writing is the manner in which the sexism of language and religious imagery is exposed . . .
