The Stagecraft of Brian Friel
Greenwich Exchange, 2004 - 83 pages
David Grant's study of the stagecraft of Brian Friel results from many years of professional association with the Irish playwright's work. This Student Guide explores the dramatic and cultural significance of Friel's vision of Ireland, the ways in which the plays might be interpreted on the stage and a synoptic view of his contribution to the theatre. Of special interest is Grant's inclusion of theatrical workshops to enhance our understanding of Friel's craft.
