An Evening with Elizabeth Bowen and Sean O’Faolin

Stage adaptations of two Irish short stories: The New House by the highly underrated writer Elizabeth Bowen, and The Small Lady by Sean 0’Faolin. The former is a domestic comedy (suffused with some malignancy), set in a ‘new house’ belonging to scions of the Anlgo-Irish Ascendency . The Small Lady explores the ‘Troubles’ in Ulster, the interaction between Catholic rebels, the landed Protestant gentry, and the Church. 2002.
