In Collection: Letters of Sean O'Casey to Mai McCarthy
Description: O'Casey discusses the search for knowledge and the need to keep working. He mentions the themes he is exploring in the play 'The Drums of Father Ned', and discusses the forthcoming Dublin production (which never, in fact, took place). He says the Abbey Theatre never in 25 years even asked to read one of his plays. He talks about the effect of hearing Margaret's 'Tipperary voice' speaking to him recently (perhaps by telephone), which prompts a sad reflection on emigration.
