Additional Info

Boasting the longest run in the history of the Abbey Theatre in Dublin, The Righteous Are Bold came to Broadway under the aegis of Eddie Dowling with the original Abbey cast.

The play itself opens with the return from England of a young Irish girl. It is apparent that she is strangely different from the girl who left. She bears peculiar marks on her body, and in uncontrolled moments this once religious girl is fiercely profane and anti-Christ. The doctor and the priest are summoned. The doctor prescribes; but the priest knows the girl to be possessed of the devil, and traces the possession to the time when she served in a seance for money. The priest undertakes to exorcise, and in a harrowing scene he succeeds; at the end he is discovered dead.
