Love in the Title A Play by Hugh Leonard


Love in the Title A Play by Hugh Leonard

Full Length, DramaCharacters: 3 female Exterior Set When Katie arrives in the field of Corcamore to paint a watercolor of the legendary stone of Clough E. Regan, she is accompanied by youthful versions of her mother and grandmother. Katie exists in the present while the others are in their own time. Their conversations companionable and hostile by turns reveal family history and its intricate relation to the wider story of Irish culture. Humorous discussions of social prejudice, religious fervor and perennial man trouble movingly evoke the mixture of nostalgia and progressiveness that characterized the twentieth century. Romantic [and] well written. There is a lovely understanding of human beings. Examiner Leonard is a master of the witty one liner [and] he has a ... gift for words with musical quality. News of the World An Irish play about Irish themes [that] speaks with a universal heart. Monterey Country Herald
