The present paper surveys representations of the child-subject in modern Irish drama from the s to the s, examining their links with the process of decolonization through revealing some of the social and psychological effects of colonialism and its aftermath. In the early 19th century the newly constructed roles of the child became entrenched in the ideology of colonial imperialism. During the Irish Literary Revival, the drama as a key literary genre provided a decidedly anti-imperial response to and counteracting of the colonial stereotypes which described the Irish as feminine, child-like and uncivilized, by redirecting the force of these categories. In several plays of the period the character still growing tends to be implicated in the project of highlighting the difference between the paralytic world of the moment and the potential for change, and is shown as capable of envisaging and anticipating transformation. After the s, in post-independence and post-colonial times the dramatized child-subject becomes related to the sense of frustration and impasse generated by the persistence of the old narratives, troping the experience of communal and individual crisis, loss, the difficulty or even impossibility to change certain patterns, prejudices and attitudes.

In the first debates over the form the national theatre movement should take, it would seem as if the Ibsenites, George Moore and Edward Martyn, lost out to Yeats with his emphasis on a mythico-poetic theatre. This chapter argues that the tradition of Irish realism as manifested in the plays of T. Murray, Lennox Robinson, R. Ray, and others begins as a form of social critique, predicated on the belief that reflecting Irish society accurately would form the grounds for addressing social issues. However, as realism evolved in Irish theatre, it increasingly lost its critical edge.
