<"this anthology comprises eight new plays by irish playwrights premiered between the years 2006 and 2011. these playwrights ride, however, in no slipstream of the identifiably irish play. here, the enterprise of playwriting itself is being re-imagined. here, above all else, is a commitment to becoming in the theatre. for all that, each play is concerned with what is unfinished business in ireland. how astonishing, then, that these plays should revolve for the most part around identity and, in particular, sexual identity. how identity comes into play, how we open up the fi eld of play, how we raise into collective experience the exercise of that play - the urgency in the playwriting would appear to lie precisely here. we can read from the historical moment - from a narrative emphasizing an economic bubble and its hangover - into these plays. or we can take these playwrights at their word and observe lives lived at the contour of identities in the making. it is for us as readers, just as we have as theatre-goers - frequently scandalized, enthralled, shamed, appalled, unburdened, tickled pink - to decide.">
