Signed by O’Casey

O’Casey (Sean).
Programme for the first production of ‘The Plough and the Stars,’ week commencing Feb. 9th, 1926, 4pp. in the traditional Abbey Theatre grey wrappers, signed by O’Casey and dated 12/2/26, (i.e. Friday of first week’s run). Staple rusted, else a good copy.
O’Casey’s masterpiece, featuring Fluther Good, the Young Covey, Bessie Burgess, Rosie Redmond, Comdt. Jack Clitheroe and his wife Nora, etc. The cast included F.J. Mc Cormick, Shelah Richards, Barry Fitzgerald, Maureen Delany, Ria Mooney and others of the Abbey greats.
* A superb association item from one of the Abbey’s great successes before the unfortunate breach with O’Casey. With a second programme, for a 1938 performance of The Shadow of a Gunman. (2)
