About this product
- DescriptionPadric Fallon created many brilliant radio plays during the 1950s, a time w recognised as the medium's golden age. He wrote with a sure sense of how the play would perform, but his works are also central to his poetic vision, expressions of the inner drama that, as he declared, 'goes on in the psyche where worlds are meeting and where history is always of the present'. These three plays, published for the first time - The Vision of MacConglinne (1953), The Poplar (1953) and The Hags of Clough (1957) - reveal the range of Fallon's historical and social themes, combining intellectual subtlety with lyrical beauty and moments of broad humour. Brian Fallon has edited the plays from original scripts, and his introduction explores their literary context and production history.
