The Bull

The work of Michael Keegan-Dolan… has a feeling of weightlessness attached. He is liberated — by virtue of his medium — from Ireland’s primarily literary tradition; his drama leaps into a mix of humour, movement and striking visual imagery. Yet it is language that gives [this] production… its rough potency… [he] takes a brutal swipe to the darkness at the heart of the new prosperous Ireland… The spectacular, brave ending… is almost transportative in its wildness. The slick, glossy commerciality of Ireland is undermined: a much truer ruthlessness has taken its place.
