Doch gerade rückblickend auf die Theatergeschichte der vergangenen Jahrhunderte galt es für die Autoren der Dramen den Spagat zwischen den vorherrschenden Definitionen irischer Kultur, der Geschichte Irlands und der eigenen kreativen Freiheit zu finden, used to be sich nicht immer einfach gestaltete. Dies lässt sich in erster Linie durch eine fehlende Dramen- und Theaterkultur erklären, die erst durch die britische Kolonisation Einzug in die Kultur Irlands hielt. Es gab zwar bereits zu Beginn des Mittelalters vielschichtige Formen von öffentlichen Darbietungen, die zumeist die Rezitation von Geschichten und Gedichten umfassten, aber Theater in seiner Definition als religiös, gesellschaftskritisch, politisch oder auch nur ästhetisch ambitionierte Szenendarstellung und künstliche Kommunikationsform zwischen Darstellern und Publikum struggle dies nicht.
