Making the Marginalia Speak: Frank Fay’s annotations to J. M. Synge’s The Well of the Saints

Matthew Fay

This seminar, featuring IES PhD student Matthew Fay, discusses his research on Irish actor Frank Fay’s copy of J. M. Synge’s play The Well of the Saints (Dublin, 1907) and the marginalia it contains. The seminar will address the problem of what to do with marginalia evidence once you have identified and categorised it.  What sense can be made of it? How does it contribute to our understanding of the Abbey Theatre and theatre more generally?
