抄録

During the three decades of the Troubles of Northern Ireland (1969- 1998), a remarkable amount of plays about the conflict was written, most by (Northern) Irish playwrights. Recently, however, alongside growing concerns about violence worldwide since 9/11, authors who are not of Irish descent have begun to choose the Northern Troubles as their theme. This article deals with two plays, Richard Bean's The Big Fellah and Jez Butterworth's The Ferryman, neither of which was written by an Irish playwright, and examines whether and to what extent it is possible to say that they can transcend regional boundaries and become part of global memories in the context of the post-Good Friday Agreement and 9/11.
