Gender, Performance, and Authorship at the Abbey Theatre

Elizabeth Brewer Redwine

  • A reassessment of authorship at the Abbey Theatre that focuses on actresses and performance
  • Considers Maud Gonne as co-author and performer rather than love object, and puts her work with Yeats in the context of his lifetime of collaborating on scripts with women
  • Offers a re-consideration of Molly Allgood in the creation of Synge's plays
