Shadow of a Gunman, The

This now classic play, written in 1923, and O?Casey?s first full-length play to reach the stage, is a tragi-comedy set in a squalid Dublin tenement in 1920. It portrays the life of some obscure people during the time of the bloody rebellion, when the Irish Republican Army and Britain?s Black-and-Tans were fighting guerilla warfare in the streets. A young Irish poet, Donal Davoren (Frank Converse,) speaks loftily of the political battle between Ireland and England, and pretends he is a revolutionist in hiding to convince a pretty girl (Sandra Morgan) that he is a fighting patriot. Jack MacGrowan --who has previously starred in other O?Casey works about the same period of rebellion, and who is recognized as the foremost interpreter of Samuel Beckett--portrays Davoren?s roommate, Seumas.
