The Arts Council Playography Na Gaeilge

Social Context

“This play is significant because it has an urgent theme and is entitled to rank as the most important offering the Theatre Festival makes available. Just imagine for a moment the sequence of articles written by Michael Viney in the Irish Times recently, on what is known as illegitimacy, crystallised into a searing drama that challenges every aspect of the nation’s treatment of this social problem”. (L. Mac G. on 23 Sep 1964)
