The Quare Fellow

Saturday 6 May 2006 20:10-20:35 (Radio 3)

Fifty years ago, Joan Littlewood's production of Brendan Behan's prison drama The Quare Fellow introduced the playwright to the wider world. Marie-Louise Muir presents a profile of this outlandish and outspoken genius, taking us back to the 1950s, when The Quare Fellow became the subject of hot debate - in a country where capital punishment was hitting the headlines.

Duration:

25 minutes
