Fair Play Though, In Fairness



He [Tom Murphy] is the artist most of us Irish writers look to for inspiration and example. Thus, it will be fascinating to see three of his plays directed by {Garry] Hynes at the Lincoln Center Festival, July 5 to 14. The plays deal with loss and emigration, and dramatize illusion and self-delusion. Hynes’s method as a director is forensic: she strips away, using her sharp sense of the abiding power of the theatrical image, cajoling actors toward the emotional and intellectual core of a play. In the past, Hynes and Murphy together have produced the very best of Irish theater. Re-united, they are likely to cause sparks to fly.
