Selected Plays


Tom Swift

«Tom's ludic spirit is the perfect vehicle for theatrical exploration; the playfulness never eclipses a real seriousness to his work.»
(Lynne Parker, Artistic Director, Rough Magic.)

«One of the most creative dramatic writers working today.»
(Kevin Reynolds, RTÉ.)

«I have always enjoyed the fun, inventiveness and sharp social comment in Tom Swift's plays. This book is an invaluable record of that work, for all those interested in daring, provocative and entertaining drama.»
(Jim Culleton, Artistic Director, Fishamble: The New Play Company.)

«At the cutting edge of contemporary Irish theatre, Tom Swift’s plays are at times absurd, at times hilarious, and always entertainingly edgy.»
(Professor Brian Singleton, Samuel Beckett Chair of Drama & Theatre School of Drama, Film & Music, Trinity College Dublin.)
