The King of Spain’s Daughter by Teresa Deevy: A Multilingual Rehearsed Reading followed by a short Q & A

Teresa Deevy was a playwright from Waterford who had six plays produced in the Abbey Theatre in the 1930s. Deevy’s plays focus on the frustrations and limitations of Irish people, and particularly of Irish women at that time. The plays portray emotional experience through silence, pause and subtext and through the creation of complex central characters.

Deevy became deaf in her early adulthood but remained independent and dynamic in every sense traveling throughout Europe and communicating on her travels through short notes written in Latin. WIT lecturers and students within the disciplines of Creative and Performing Arts and Languages have teamed up with Garter Lane Arts Centre to present an multilingual reading of Deevy’s one-act play The King of Spain’s Daughter as the latest WIT experiment in considering Deevy’s work.
