    The Oxford Handbook of Modern Irish Theatre provides the most comprehensive survey of the field to be found in a single volume. Drawing on more than 40 contributors from around the world, the book addresses a full range of topics relating to modern Irish theatre from the late nineteenth-century theatre to the most recent works of postdramatic devised theatre.

Although Irish has been used as a literary language for more than 1, years (see Irish literature), and modern literature in Irish dates – as in most European languages – to the 16th century, modern Irish literature owes much of its popularity to the 19th century Gaelic Revival cultural movement. Writers in Irish have since produced some of the most interesting literature to come out of.
