The Briery Gap

A Play in One Act

  • Nótaí

    Murray wrote 'The Briery Gap' in 1915. He found this play very troubling. He worried about public opinion given the subject matter. In a second printing in 1926, Joan does not commit suicide; but merely slumps on a rock near the river. The play was given several public readings before the 1948 Abbey production; an experimental production in the Peacock in 1973, directed by Jim Sheridan, was framed in the context of contemporary debates about the availability of contraception and the plight of unmarried mothers in Ireland.
