Casadh an tSúgáin by Douglas Hyde

The original production of Casadh an tSúgáin by Douglas Hyde took place in the Gaiety Theatre in 1901, the first professional production in Irish. This property list drawn up by stage management notes not only the props used on stage, but also a ground plan for the kitchen setting. This was one of two plays performed that night, the other play being The Playboy of the Western World by J. M. Synge. From a practical point of view, the props listed such as the loy, barrels, clay pipes and tables could be used in both plays.
