CHRISTOPHER MORASH, Seamus Heaney Professor of Irish Writing, Vice Provost (2016-19)
Hazel Ellis and Dublin's Gate Theatre
Chris Morash is the Seamus Heaney Professor of Irish Writing at Trinity College Dublin. He is co-editor of Mint’s publication Teresa Deevy Reclaimed: Volume I, as well as the forthcoming Volume II. While Dublin’s Abbey Theatre was Ireland’s best known theatre internationally in the early years of the twentieth century, some of the most interesting theatre in Ireland in the 1930s was actually produced at the Gate Theatre in Dublin—where WOMEN WITHOUT MEN was first performed in 1938. In these videos, filmed after a performance of WOMEN WITHOUT MEN by Hazel Ellis, Professor Morash discusses the theatre, the people, and the ideas that formed the context for that first production. Videos by Joshua Paul Johnson. Recorded live on February 27, 2016.
