"The most important and controversial work to be mounted by the National Theatre for many a year" (Irish Times) The Sanctuary Lamp is set in a church. "Murphy, in the best traditions of Bunuel, takes a hallowed institution and populates it with social misfits who desecrate every convention in both thought and action...Murphy's savage indignation is unbearably true..." (Irish Times)
