Sean O’Casey is widely considered to be one of the most accomplished playwrights of the twentieth century. O’Casey was born on March 30, 1880, the youngest of thirteen children in a Protestant, working-class family living in predominantly Catholic Dublin. Around 1906 O’Casey left the Protestant church, expending his energy instead on nationalist causes.

He it was who most passionately, most powerfully and most memorably dramatized the traumatic birth of the nation. He it was who gave to the twentieth-century theatre a greater range of vivid and original characters, male and female, than any other Irish playwright.
