One of Ireland’s leading playwrights, Marina Carr has emerged since the mid-1990s as a theatrical force of nature. Her work artfully blends the contemporary and the classic, the mythic and the real, frequently revisiting the tragedies of Shakespeare and ancient Greece and subverting their central premises in order to interrogate themes of family dysfunction, self-destruction, and redemption. This video interview was recorded during Marina Carr's visit to the University of Oklahoma as the 2012 Puterbaugh Fellow. The interview is conducted by Nancy Finn.
