Star of the Sea : A Postcolonial/Postmodern Voyage into the Irish Famine

Red Roses and Petrol, 1995

Red Roses and Petrol was O’Connor’s first published stage play. This work follows the story of Dubliner Moya Doyle, as well as her far-flung children, who are returning home for the funeral of their father, Enda Doyle. However, as “the ghosts of the Doyle's past begin to materialise” throughout the play, the results are “both profoundly disturbing and memorably comic” (“Red Roses”). Red Roses and Petrol was awarded the In Dublin Magazine award for best new play and was made into a film in 2003 (“Red Roses”).
