Big Maggie New Edition with Notes Keane, John B.

ISBN: 9781781172858

The story of Big Maggie Polpin and her attempts to keep her family together after the death of her husband is an enduring theatre favourite. The dialogue crackles with hilarious, caustic putdowns as the indomitable Maggie deals with her feckless family and unwanted suitors. Everyone wants a part of Big Maggie and her property, but she has other ideas. John B. Keane's wonderful creation of a rural Irish matriarch ranks with Juno, Mommo and Molly Bloom as one of the great female creations of twentieth-century Irish literature.

Includes notes from an experienced teacher focusing on the themes required for Leaving Certificate examinations.

'A fullblooded, salty, earthy play with a great ring of truth and uproarious with comedy' – The Irish Times
