In the same spirit as his novels, O’Brien’s plays are speculative, inventive, wickedly funny, and a delightful addition to his collected works—now available at last: this volume collects Flann O’Brien’s dramatic work into a single volume, including Thirst, Faustus Kelly, and The Insect Play: A Rhapsody on Saint Stephen’s Green. It also includes several plays and teleplays that have never before seen print, including The Dead Spit of Kelly (of which a film version is in production by Michael Garland), The Boy from Ballytearim, and An Scian (only recently discovered), as well as teleplays from the RTÉ series O’Dea’s Your Man and Th’oul Lad of Kilsalaher.
