Beschreibung

This book examines the surge of queer performance produced across Ireland since the first stirrings of the Celtic Tiger in the mid-1990s, up to the passing of the Marriage Equality referendum in the Republic in 2015.

"This book offers not only a riveting account of its many forms in Ireland, but acts as a model for reading queer performance transnationally. As such, it is valuable beyond the context of Irish theatre to wider studies of queer performance and queer studies in general." (Alyson Campbell, Contemporary Theatre Review, Vol. 27 (1), 2017)

"Its scope is challenging and - in the best sense of the word - thoughtprovoking the depth of its theoretical framework is highly interdisciplinary and refreshing and the performances it looks at approach the topic of the book from many varied points of view. One of the strong fortes of the book is the presentation of the argument: the performances always take centre stage and are presented and discussed in very satisfactory detail and depth. ... An enjoyable and stirring read." (Michael Heinze, Theater Forschung, theaterforschung.de, May, 2016)
