A collection of short plays with some of them relating to the Great War. In particular is O’Flaherty VC which is a comic one-act play about an Irish soldier in the British army returning home after winning the Victoria Cross. The play was written in 1915 at a time when the British government was promoting recruitment in Ireland, while many Irish republicans expressed opposition to fighting in the war.
