Irish theatre and its histories appear to be dominated by men and their actions. This book's socially and culturally contextualized analysis of performance over the last two decades, however reveals masculinities that are anything but hegemonic, played out in theatres and other arenas of performance all over Ireland.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Singleton's treatment of [a] broad swath of work results in a varied, yet detailed, study' - Modern Drama

'This is a beautifully written, engaging and grounding breaking book. Its rigorous approach to masculinity as a diverse, complex and contradictory category makes it an extremely important contribution not just to the study of Irish theatre and performance and to postcolonial studies but to the field as a whole.' - Geraldine Harris, Lancaster University, UK

'This new edition brings Brian Singleton's landmark study of masculinities and contemporary Irish theatre right up to date, offering compelling readings of recent theatre texts and performances and new perspectives on classic Irish theatre from Yeats onwards. Singleton's book is an authoritative, comprehensive, and insightful guide to Irish theatre's responses to the contemporary moment, charting the emergence of new theatrical languages and voices.' - Anna McMullan, University of Reading, UK
