The Dead School
by Pat McCabe
In The Dead School, Patrick McCabe returns to the emotionally dense landscape of small-town Ireland to explore the inner lives of two men: a headmaster and a schoolteacher, each man the product of a soul-stifling culture, each battling his own demons of loss and betrayal. Tension coils–until tragedy strikes a young student in their charge, and the latent despair and rage that has festered in their hearts explodes onto the stage.
