Mixed Marriage

£14.99

Product description

Mixed Marriage is a poetic tragedy which dissects class and religious sectarianism through the breakdown of one ordinary family in Ireland, before partition.Set in Belfast as the city's factories come out on strike, Mixed Marriage centres on John Rainey, the respected head of a Protestant family, who acts to calm the sectarian tension being stirred up by politicians for their own ends. On the streets, Rainey successfully unites Catholic and Protestant against the machinations of the factory owners, the nationalists and the Orangemen but, at home, passions rise when Rainey discovers that his son wants to marry the beautiful, innocent Nora - a Catholic.
Mixed Marriage was first produced at the Abbey theatre, Dublin, in 1911 and later the same year in London at the Royal Court. It was revived in the West End in 1922. This is one of The Abbey Theatre Series of printed scripts.
A paperback edition, with cover in matt green paper with a darker green illustration and lettering on the front. Although badly worn on spine and edges, also there is foxing to text block edges, which are untrimmed, all text of the play is clear and legible.

The dedication page has an ink inscription in 3 parts, comprising a neat signature which may be "E. H. Bremmen", "Hull. E. Yorks" and "Jan. 1927".
