    I can understand why Irish audiences rioted upon first seeing this play. If you're gonna write a FU to Eire, as Casey does here, the citizens of said country do not strike me as the type who will sit back and take it all in.

    A young Dublin couple begin their married life in a tenement surrounded by cantankerous & opinionated neighbors. Nora wants to feather her nest and Jack wants to join the rebellion to make Ireland free so that's the conflict. The neighbors argue about evolution, socialism and patriotism. Barbara Stanwyck is unconvincing as Nora. The neighbors, including Barry Fitzgerald as Fluther, do convince and keep the joint jumping. Meanwhile the rebellion happens off stage and people are shot, even after looting, and all is quiet at the end although Nora is now completely crazy and Jack is among the dead. Sean O'Casey wrote it to prove his opinion that Ireland could never be independent no matter what. He wrote this in 1926 while living in England.
