An award winning playwright with several plays produced in Ireland and America, Jim Lucason has been a member of the Playwrights’ Platform since 2016.
Here are some samples of how his work has been described:
William Gibson: “Lucason’s tongue is gifted with a kind of Irish gayety, witty and charming.”
Norman Mailer: “To declare that Mr. L understands doubtless a lot in the Spooky Art.”
Celia de Fréine, Irish playwright/poet: “West Kerry, set in 1916, is an evocative piece, rich in style and language.”
Michael O’Sullivan The Irish Democrat: “The realistic portrayal of strong, believable characters in the two pieces (West Kerry and The Last Rightboy) coupled with the author’s obvious relish for language and local speech rhythms marks him out as a storyteller….”
Sue Harrison Provincetown Banner: “Jim Lucason may define what it means to be a Renaissance man.”
