THE SUITCASE UNDER THE BED, named for where all of Teresa Deevy’s writing was stored for decades, prior to Mint Theater Company’s Deevy Project. Deevy, thanks in part to the Mint, is now recognized as “One of Ireland’s best and most neglected dramatists.” (Irish Times) These particular 4 plays cast an unsentimental eye on the idea of marriage. Deevy had 6 plays produced by the Abbey Theatre from 1930 - 1936, and then the Abbey turned its back on her. Deevy’s next and perhaps best play was rejected, effectively ending her career as an Abbey playwright.  She then began to write for the radio—a remarkable turn of events, given that she was completely deaf.  She lost her hearing due to an illness in her late teens and was never able to hear her beautifully-crafted dialogue spoken.
