In this volume of essays and recollections, scholars, actors, directors, and acting teachers explore Nick Enright's contribution to theatre. The book is designed to explain, illuminate and debate Enright's plays, television and film scripts, his directing style and his approach to acting. Enright's drama is frequently studied by students at high school and at university. The essays and recollections included in this book will inspire and inform students, teachers, scholars and theatre enthusiasts. Part One opens with an overview of Enright's career in theatre followed by an essay by Peter Fitzpatrick about one of Enright's most well-known works, The Boy from Oz, in order to give readers, including those based overseas, an immediate sense of the important achievements of Enright's career which include musicals, film and theatre. The ensuing chapters are arranged to convey the full extent of his remarkable oeuvre, followed by chapters with detailed textual analysis of Enright's plays. Part Two consists of moving tributes from artistic collaborators. These recollections serve to document Enright's approaches to writing and teaching acting, and his attitudes to theatre, as well as celebrating the warmth and love that this man extended to those with whom he worked.
