Quare Fellow
The Quare Fellow
Set in an Irish prison in the 1950s on the day before and the morning of an execution, The Quare Fellow is a dark but amusing portrait of life inside. With music, wit and compassion, Behan presents the sparring between inmates and warders, and the ritual and customs that lead to the quare fellow’s appointed hour.
