In Collection: Edmund Downey Additional Papers, 1842-1968.
Description: Murphy's early letters are written on headed paper of the Belasco Theatre, New York. He writes of his efforts to promote Irish literature in the U.S. (1909), the impact Word War I has had on the U.S. and his concerns about the introduction of prohibition (1919). Subsequently writing from Hollywood, he refers to his efforts to get an ‘Irish revue’ produced and the number of stage failures put on in American theatres. He bemoans the fact that Irish Americans don’t support Irish theatre, but notes that the Abbey Theatre has had ‘a small measure of success’ in America (1929).
