Just read an interview of the playwright and now director, Martin McDonagh, in today's San Francisco Chronicle Pink Pages. He reminds me that I also want to read J.M. Synge.
I have a cousin named Martin McDonagh. Although, I think he spells his last name differently than the creative lad mentioned above. Many people in my family spell their last names differently than each other ... there's at least 4 variations ... due to ... British invasions ... Ellis Island misspellings ... personal quirkiness.
