Queer Notions is a seminal anthology of new plays and performance documentation from Ireland.
Foreword by Frank McGuinness
This collection is a record of some of the most important performative ideas and embodied interventions that have shaped queer culture and theatre and performance practice in Ireland
in recent times, principally in the years following the decriminalization of homosexuality in
1993, up to and including the present. The anthology includes plays, experimental performance documentation, and a visual essay that reveal the impassioned creativity that illuminates and invigorates the margins of culture.
