Frank McGuinness: ‘To Hell with the Truth So Long as It Rhymes’

  • Graham Price
Chapter

Abstract

Frank McGuinness’s debt to Oscar Wilde is well acknowledged by McGuinness, and this chapter considers how McGuinness’s plays stage modern versions of Wildean dandies who are martyrs to performance art and who use the power of style to transform the miserable and banal worlds in which they inhabit.
