Sean O’Casey


About the Author

Sean O’Casey was born in Dublin in 1880. In 1926 he moved to England. He discouraged any professional performances of his plays in Ireland after the Archbishop of Dublin refused to inaugurate the Dublin festival if O’Casey’s play The Drums of Father Ned (1958) was included. O’Casey died in 1964.
