Additional Info

Staged by Harold Prince as a piece of environmental theatre with action flowing around the audience, Sean O'Casey's turbulent life unfolds in lyrical excerpts from the first two books of his six volume autobiography. The material is laced with music, singing, and dancing, crowd scenes, plays within the play, and monologues in which the older O'Casey watches early scenes from his life.
