Contaminating the past in the theatre of Martin Lynch.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


Locating Lynch in the tradition of John McGrath’s popular theatre allows his work to be seen as both recovering working class experience and, crucially, probing mythologies that have justified and perpetuated political violence. The paper is focused particularly on two of Lynch’s most recent works: Holding Hands at Paschendale (2006) and The Long Kesh Chronicles (2009).
