Theater professor Charlotte Headrick, co-editor of the recent book, “Irish Women Dramatists: 1908-2001” has received an excellent review of the book in the London Times Literary Supplement, June 3, 2015. The review states: “Now, gathered together in this comprehensively annotated, well-produced volume – with a scholarly introduction, made up primarily of a putative history of Irish drama, and a detailed biography preceding each play – seven female voices create together a real force, a palpable clamour, as if demanding, collectively, that their plays be remembered and performed.”
