CULTURE SNIPPET
The distinctive role and craft of the seanchaí is particularly associated with the Gaeltacht (the Irish-speaking areas of Ireland), although story-tellers recognizable as seanchaithe were also to be found in rural areas throughout English-speaking Ireland.

Brendan Behan's fortunes changed in 1954 with the appearance of his play The Quare Fellow, his major breakthrough at last. Originally called The Twisting of Another Rope and influenced by his time spent in jail, it chronicles the vicissitudes of prison life leading up to the execution of the quare fellow, a character who is never seen. The prison dialogue is vivid and laced with satire, but reveals to the reader the human detritus that surrounds capital punishment.  The reading of The Quare Fellow will be performed by MIAS in October.
