"Riders to the sea" is the great play of modren theatre. two things make it the greatest play.one is the subject of the play i.e.,human sorrow and the other is Maurya's character.In the play , human sorrow and how to bear herocially both have been treated perfectly.

maurya's sorrowful sondition has been shown very vividlyin this speech of Cathleen:"she is lying down.GOD help her,and may be sleeping,if she is able"
