A Favored Umbra

Shadow of a Gunman by Sean O’Casey just noses ahead as my favourite in the photo finish of fantastic plays we have read as part of Armagh Project 2014. It has a nuanced driving action that keeps my attention with new discoveries each time I read. It also story that, while vital to tell, is kept hushed in most other works on the time period. Finally, and most importantly, the theme of conflict seeping into the lives of noncombatants is still resoundingly relevant today; approachable wherever violence rends the world apart.
