Folk memory as lethal cultural weapon - Protestant Ireland versus Catholic Ireland ("Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme" and "Carthaginians"); visualizing McGuinness' verbal theatre - interpretations of Caravaggio's theatricality ("Innocence"); "An unhappy marriage between Ireland and England" - a post-colonial gaze at Ireland's past ("Mary and Lizzie", "Someone Who'll Watch Over Me" and "Mutabiltie"); "The voices of the voiceless" - representation of Irish women ("The Factory Girls", "Baglady" and "The Hen House"); families at war - McGuinness' bad comedy of manners ("The Bird Sanctuary" and "Dolly West's Kitchen"); catalogue of the Tilling Archive of McGuinness material in the Library at the University of Ulster, Coleraine.
Offering an insight into the social preoccupations of McGuinness' work, Mikami gives an overview of McGuinness' drama from his early plays right up to the recent "Dolly West's Kitchen", treating them thematically, rather than chronologically.
