From two contemporary plays – the Irish play The Beauty Queen of Leenane written in 1996 and the American play August: Osage County written in 2013, this talk discusses the "tragic style" of Western drama in the past two decades, and its relation with contemporary political and cultural context: when humanism has become insolvent, and we are bogged down by humanitarianism, what does this imply? And, in this conservative age, where does the critical edge of drama come from?
