Curlew Theatre: The Loves of Lady Gregory
A Curlew Theatre Production: The Loves of Lady Gregory
This is a fascinating hour-long sketch of Lady Augusta Gregory’s life – private and public – against the background of Ireland’s advance from the Cultural Revival through the Easter Rising, the War of Independence, and the Civil War, to the new Ireland. As well as her plays, translations, and role as a founder of the Abbey Theatre, the play concentrates on intimate relationships: her marriage; affairs; the death of her son in the Great War; her friendship with Yeats. All these are brought to life in an immediate, human self-portrait of a woman often confined to the margins of literary history.
