Seán O'Casey was a major Irish dramatist and memorist.
A committed nationalist and socialist, he was the first Irish playwright of note to write about the Dublin working classes. His plays are particularly noted for the sympathetic treatment of female characters.
Collaborations with Hitchcock
O'Casey collaborated with Alfred Hitchcock on two projects — firstly an adaptation of his play "Juno and the Paycock" and then a failed project (titled "The Park") which O'Casey later turned into the play "Within the Gates".
