Abstract: Christina Reid’s radio play My Name, Shall I Tell You My Name? (1987) confronts the crisis of identity that the Somme offensive effectuated for First World War veterans in the North of Ireland. Interrogating the Somme as part of Northern Ireland’s state-level political teleology, My Name exposes the hegemonic pressure that this claim put on veterans to be received as ideal embodiments of a too narrowly defined Northern Irish identity – the martial, male Protestant unionist. Reid’s play depicts the longstanding ethno-national and gendered exclusions predicated by Northern Ireland’s processing of the trauma of the Somme.
