BeschreibungThe Great Hunger is a highly celebrated play from 1983. It is Tom Mac Intyre's version of Patrick Kavangh's famous long poem. It represents the life and dreams of Patrick MacGuire, a small farmer and potato-gatherer, a man suffering from sexual and spiritual starvation. The play fuses image, movement, and language into a classic of contemporary Irish drama. The Gallant John-Joe is the soliloquy of John-Joe Concannon, a widower grappling with physical and mental infirmity and trying unsuccessfully to plumb the mysteries of his relationship with his troubled daughter.
PortraitTOM MAC INTYRE, born in Cavan in 1931, is the author of many works of fiction and poetry as well as plays. His next novel, Story of a Girl, is forthcoming in 2003.
