" . . . covering 1975-77, years of consolidation for some, disappointment for others, the authors take stock of the progress of reform. In 'Crossfire's' critique of feminism; in the 'Christian Brothers' satire of Catholic education; in 'A Happy and Holy Occasion's' portrait of Irish obsequiousness and superstition; and 'Inner Voices' allegory of the ignorant in power, the plays express their writers' disillusion with the past and impatience for reconsideration . . .
