Brendan Behan (Pdf / Kindle ePUB) The uare Fellow A Comedy Drama
N medicinal alcohol and the chaplains affable tipsy and indifferent One warder is very sympathetic and his indness startles the suspicious lags as well as his own superior The play is described by all critics as a scathing satire on capital punishment but I feel like *this is missing the mark the play is *is missing the mark the play is than that The condemned man never speaks and his execution happens off stage so there s little to humanize him or tug at the audience s heartstrings at his fate The play is rather an examination of how an execution affects everyone else but that s not uite the whole story either To me this bleak drama with its sense of pointlessness nihilism selfishness and impending doom hanging over all the proceedings is an attack on the hypocrisies and corruption of those in power Both British and Irish authorities are criticized the Free State didn t change anything but the badges in the warders caps as well as religious figures after some vague unsympathetic remarks to a whipped prisoner a clergyman flees leaving a smell of booze that would have tripped you up The dialogue features several sharp exchanges and a good deal of black humor but these don t efface the overall mood of the play which is bleak and cynical My friend raved about this play as he d read it at school I didn t finish it as I didn t have the same connection to it You find out a lot about Irish prison life and the voices of the characters that surround the uare fellow who never speaks are full of life but I was not sufficiently inspired to finish it One to see on stage I m sure What I ve learned from the book so far about Irish Prison Slang uare strange or remarkable also seems ot have somethign to do with being a lifer Mot Woman I think hot and young Suealer Baby Screw Prison Guard Dog End Cigarette ButtWell this play takes place the day before and the morning of a hanging at an Irish Prison I believe the moral of this play is hanging is a terrible way to die and the state The Road to Einsteins Relativity killing people is awful and that compared to those things Irish prison ain t half bad It s about survived the system as well It s about how once your int he prison culture you re in and even when you leave everyonenows your coming backI liked this play though it s not what you d cal.

Pogues tune The Auld Triangle is from this play and Brendan istune The Auld Triangle is from this play and Brendan Behan is of Shane MacGowan s inspirations I also was able to see the film based on this play a little while ago The film while based on the play is very different in some aspects Set in Dublin s Mountjoy Prison in the early 1950s on the eve of the execution by hanging of two convicted murderers The play is very much focused on the prisoners while the film is much do in the guards I enjoyed the film but I have to say that the play is much somber and chilling particularly the second act where the prisoners are digging the grave for the man to hanged the next morning and the start of the third act where guards and prisoners talk about the impending execution with an oddly effective mixture of disgust resignation and sympathy for the condemned man Reading plays is an odd experience I find that plays are eually about the writing and the staging sets acting etc I find that reading a play is enlightening but that I m only getting half of the experience Regardless while I am not certain of the relevancy if The uare Fellow today I Behan s truly deserves the recognition he received for writing this one I just wish I could see it actually being staged at some point Having left Dublin almost 15 years ago this was a great reminder of slang I haven t heard in years Writer s Block A visual Scene 1Among the rhododendrons walking with artificial stride in memory of Hamlet I the lover of all honest science inwardly hark back to a time when the prayers and the bells made complete sense Scene 2Marshall D the resident troll somewhat understated in role opines the following The apple doesn t fall far from the tree Scene 3Still amongst rhododendrons now inwardly viewing benediction with an innocent child s conviction I intone A burnt child loves the fire Scene 4In the background John Cougar Mellencamp lies dead Random read 36 DramaIn an Irish prison warders and prisoners alike nervously await the execution of a the titular uare fellow who apparently butchered his brother with a meat chopper It s a wretched place with youths hooting at the older prisoners the older ones pretending to be hurt so they can gulp dow.

L an upper The uare fellow a condemned murderer who butchered his brother like a pig is due to be hanged in the morning Does he deserve the death penalty Behan doesn t bring him on stage so we aren t reuired to vilify or sympathise with him directly What we are shown is the brutalising effect of capital punishment on those most closely involved in carrying out the sentence Behan shows not without humour how we are all degraded by state murder I first read this play in about 1982 when I was sixteen I loved it immediately because coming from Irish parents the dialogue made me laugh continuously and I new the famous song well I could hear the Dublin accents bouncing off the prison cell walls I think if you don t have the benefit of that ear it will be uite hard to penetrate this writing and really feel what Behan was doing You might just read it and wonder what the hell is this and have the sense that this is something that only worked in the 1950s However if you do it s a joy Behan was without doubt a truly gifted playwright and in this short play
