Selected Plays of Brian Friel

Selected Plays of Brian Friel FRIEL, Brian

Brian Friel was born in County Tyrone in 1929 and worked as a teacher before turning to full-time writing in 1960. His first stage success was in 1964 with Philadelphia, Here I Come, which established his claim as heir to such distinguished predecessors as Yeats, Synge, O'Casey, and Behan. In 1979 he and actor Stephen Rea formed the Field Day Theatre Company, whose first theatrical production was Friel's Translations in 1980. Also included in this selection are The Freedom of the City, set in Londonderry in 1970; Living Quarters, which Desmond MacAvok in the Evening Press called ""one of the most fascinating and, in the end, truly moving evenings. . .in Irish Theatre""; Faith Healer, a metaphoric depiction of the artist and his gift' and Aristocrats, ""as fine and as stimulating and as warm a piece of writing as had appeared on the Irish stage for many years,"" according to David Nowland, the Irish Times.
