Reviews

Critical Moments: Fintan O'Toole on Modern Irish Theatre

Reviewed by : Eamonn Kelly (Books Ireland, October, 2004)

" Theatre criticism and theoretical analysis do not always make for enjoyable reading  . . . this collection of Fintan O'Toole's writings on theatre is however, that rarest of things, a highly readable overview of Irish theatre over the past twenty years".

The Sage and the Stage

Reviewed by : Christina Hunt Mahony (The Irish Times, Weekend Review)

"This weighty and handsome book from Carysfort Press represents a weighty gathering of the critical observations and evaluations of one of Ireland's most prolific and perceptive drama critics . . .The book is filled with gems, and can be read chronologically to give a cogent sense of where Irish theatre is and how far it has come in the past two decades, or enjoyed simply opened at random . .  It is not easily judged or summed up, but it burns with an unmistakable integrity and attempts a voyage that few in the modern theatre would venture".
