1. Fitzgerald, Keri L. Martin McDonagh's Inheritance of Cultural Memory: Gender and The Enduring Relationship between Hunger and Power in The Cripple of Inishmaan and The Beauty Queen of Leenane.

Degree: Master of Art, Literature, 2013, Texas State University – San Marcos

Employing the perspective of cultural trauma studies, this thesis explores the rich cultural memory of food’s association with power that has surfaced in many works of the Irish Canon—including W. B. Yeats, James Joyce, Samuel Beckett, and Edna O’Brien—and has been inherited and forwarded by Martin McDonagh’s The Beauty Queen of Leenane and The Cripple of Inishmaan. This is achieved by looking through the lens of gender, which further clarifies and magnifies this association. In doing so, this thesis will fill a hungry gap in scholarship that ought to acknowledge a truth important enough to be traceable and enduring for centuries: in Ireland, food equals power. Advisors/Committee Members: Wilson, Steve M. (advisor), Cohen, Paul N. (committee member), Hennessy, Michael J. (committee member).

2. Farrelly, Ann Dillon. “It depends on the fella. And the cat.”: Negotiating humanness through the myth of Irish identity in the plays of Martin McDonagh.

Degree: PhD, Theatre, 2004, The Ohio State University

This dissertation focuses on the work of the new Irish playwright, Martin McDonagh, and where he fits in the rich tradition of Irish drama. The specific focus is an exploration of each of McDonagh’s five produced plays on Ireland: The Beauty Queen of Leenane, A Skull in Connemara, The Lonesome West, The Cripple of Inishmaan, and The Lieutenant of Inishmore. By tracing through the history of Irish drama from the establishment of the Irish Literary Theatre at the turn of the century to Friel and on to the present, this dissertation demonstrates how McDonagh’s drama offers a new voice for Ireland. This dissertation focuses on a few key individuals and their “benchmark” plays which laid the groundwork for McDonagh: W. B. Yeats, Lady Gregory, and J. M. Synge, Sean O’Casey, Samuel Beckett, and Brian Friel. In addition, this dissertation examines the notion of Irish identity and what that has meant to the other Irish playwrights. McDonagh’s plays have developed a reputation for being dark and desperate comedies that shine a light on the wickedness of the human spirit. This dissertation takes issue with those misinterpretations and focuses on the empowering nature of McDonagh’s message. Within each play, McDonagh creates exaggerated worlds in which the people defy tradition and invent their own moral codes. These exaggerated communities exist to teach the audience—and, more specifically, the Irish people—that they are no longer required to let the traditional power structures control their lives. In the worlds created by McDonagh, the people truly are the masters of their fate and the captains of their soul. McDonagh’s plays explore what it means to be human through the centering of the following four binaries: faith and reason, autonomy and responsibility, humans and nature, and individual and community. While the Irish drama of the past has illustrated how the Irish people have always privileged one side of each binary, McDonagh’s characters have negotiated these binaries and found the peaceful center. Advisors/Committee Members: Reilly, Joy (Advisor).
