The Night Alive and Other Plays
By

Rating
Conor McPherson, the Irish dramatist who gave us "The Weir" and "Shining City," has a singular gift for making the ordinary glow with an extra dimension, like a gentle phosphorescence waiting to be coaxed into radiance. Ben Brantley, "New York Times" Conor McPherson is one of the true poets of the theatre. David Cote, "Time Out New York" Includes: "The Night Alive"With inimitable warmth, style, and craft, Conor McPherson s new play deftly mines the humanity to be found in the most unlikely of situations. "The Birds"A suspenseful, atmospheric adaptation of Daphne du Maurier s enthralling short story. "The Veil""The Veil" weaves Ireland s troubled colonial history into a transfixing story about the search for love, the transcendental, and the circularity of time. "The Dance of Death"A visceral new version of Strindberg s compelling, bitingly funny battle of wills. Conor McPherson was born in Dublin in 1971. His best-known works include "The Weir" (1999 Olivier Award for Best New Play), "Dublin Carol, The Seafarer" (Tony nomination for Best Play), "Shining City" (Tony nomination for Best Play) and "Port Authority. The Night Alive" was awarded Best Play by the New York Drama Critics Circle."
