Reviews

Sacred Play

Reviewed by : Anne Louise Gilligan

"This is a book of insight and imagination. It is a literary tour de force . . .to read Anne O'Reilly's analysis leaves one longing to return to theatre and to play. While the text is utterly readable, the ideas shared are profound . .  One of the captivating aspects of this book is that, while it's about plays and stories, it also challenges the reader to rethink and re-imagine his/her own story. It is indeed a literary work of art".
