Additional Info

A section of O'Casey's early autobiography, dramatized for Broadway by Mr. Shyre, and presented with Staats Cotsworth and Aline MacMahon, among others, in a reading on a bare stage. We meet O'Casey in his first skirmish with women; in the episodes and torn allegiances of the Irish rebellion; in his first job, in a bookstore, which ended disastrously; in his first acquaintance with death, close within his own family. Finally he makes his decision; to stand no longer looking at the pictures in the hallway, but to move out into the mainstream of life, and carve his own history. Admirably dramatic, though it is a reading on a bare stage.
