This volume is a re-issuing of the dramatic writings of one of Ireland's most important women writers. Teresa Deevy's plays provided a viable female viewpoint on the tensions between individual selfhood and nationhood in Ireland in the 1930s and 1940s. this volume includes her most critically acclaimed writing for Dublin's Abbey Theatre: "The King of Spain's Daughter", "Katie Roche" and "The Wild Goose". It also publishes, for the first time, her compelling radio drama, "Supreme Dominion". Deevy's plays have continued to attract popular interest since her death in 1963,and her importance in terms of modern theatre, Irish studies and women's studies cannot be underestimated.
