Main page request[edit]

I'd like to put this article on the main page in the next few days, but the summary at the top is wholly inadequate. Could someone expand the introduction (preferably using News style, but Summary style is also accepable). →Raul654 23:24, Sep 19, 2004 (UTC)

Done. Filiocht 09:49, 20 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Congreve Irish[edit]

I wonder whether it is right to call Congreve an Irish playwright. He was born in England, and as far as I know, none of his ancestors were Irish. The fact that he grew up in Ireland does not make him Irish. --Tamas 09:40, 22 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Article is unbalanced[edit]

Most of this article is taken up with accounts of Irish-born playwrights whose plays were successful on the English stage. This does not represent Irish Theatre. There are a few paragraphs on Irish theatre in the 20th century at the end, which need expansion. I suggest moving the playwrights out of this article to a new article and placing the emphasis on Irish theatre (writers, producers, actors, etc.) as it developed in the late 19th and early 20th century.
