A decade is a dangerous divide. It is when one takes stock, and who knows what may emerge? What I try to do in this article is give some shape to my writing in the ten years since 1999--where I was coming from, where I went, where I think I am going. And yes, I say this is dangerous because of all unreliable witnesses, there is surely none more unreliable than an author surveying the past, deciphering the present, predicting the future. We see things as we wish, we spin them as we care to spin, never letting facts get in the way of a good fiction, a convincing yarn, for our business--especially theatre business--is rarely truth or rarer still, realism. The closest any character in my plays comes to articulating that credo might be a surprise--it is McIlwaine, a rough Belfast shipyard worker in Observe The Sons Of Ulster Marching Towards The Somme. A man remarkably proficient at beating a Lambeg drum, he gives on the eve of the Battle of the Somme his version of what happened a few months earlier in Dublin at Easter 1916. McIlwaine Did you hear about this boy Pearse? The boy who took over a post office because he was short of a few stamps.
