    Default Brian Friel Has Died

    It was reported this morning that the playright Brian Friel has died.

    Here is a rare 1982 interview with him.

    "Translations" and "Dancing at Lughnasa" were the only two of his plays that I've seen 'live on stage'. A very worthy contributor to 'how we see ourselves'.

    A panel of men is discussing Friel on RTE One (Arena) at the moment.

    A pity no women are involved, considering that Friel was a playwright who wrote plenty of women characters (and female situations).
