The Reception of Martin McDonagh's Plays on Viennese Stages. Edition No. 1
VDM Publishing House, August 2010, Pages: 144

The number of plays presented to Viennese audiences adds up to four out of his six plays in the last decade. This thesis aims at providing a thorough analysis of the particularities of McDonagh's plays on Viennese stages and consequently to guide to a profound understanding of the reception of the plays by Viennese audiences.
