A Television Adaptation of an Irish play!
13 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sean O'Casey, the Irish playwright, was known for his plays set in his beloved Ireland. This play is not much different. It is set in a tenement in Dublin during the 1920s where there were problems among the classes. In this drama, Frank Converse is dynamic as a leading role as an aspiring Irish poet who is caught with a sense of conscience and duty to his country and to his fellow Irishmen and women. The supporting cast is joined by Richard Dreyfuss without his famous mustache before he won me over in Jaws. There is a lot of monologues and verbal interaction between the characters but that is no different than any other Broadway theater archives except this drama was filmed for public television in Southern California. Broadway Theater Archives can now be only obtained on DVDs and VHS. It's a shame that there is no other way to show dramas and comedies from the stage to the masses.
