IRISH WOMEN DRAMATISTS now presented in a new book by INCO Member Eileen Kearney

Eileen Kearney and Charlotte Headrick have created the first anthology of Irish women playwrights that is firmly grounded in the history of twentieth century Irish theater and the social history of modern Ireland.  Women characters dominate the Irish stage yet women dramatists have been neglected, ignored and deliberately marginalized.  This new anthology takes an important step towards addressing that problem.  It celebrates seven great writers whose dramas display the vitality, virtuosity and variety of Irish women's play writing.

Eileen Kearney has been a leading Irish theatre scholar and director since the 1980s and currently teaches at the University of Colorado, Denver.  Charlotte Headrick is professor of theater at Oregon State University and has directed numerous Irish plays. 

Irish Women Dramatists, 1908- 2001, is available, so far, on Amazon:  http:www.amazon.com/Irish-Women-Dramatists-Studies/dp/0815633750  or contact Eileen Kearney directly: kearney621@aol.com
