Edinburgh 2009: Elaine Murphy and Little Gem

19th August 2009



The ace cast – Sarah Greene, Hilda Fay and Anita Reeves – perform extracts from Elaine Murphy’s hit debut Little Gem (Traverse), a triple monologue by three generations of Dublin women, and then Philip Fisher talks to them about the play.

One critic has already compared Elaine Murphy to Sean O’Casey and Brian Friel, which is great for a 30-year-old playwright.
