Abstract: Throughout his long and varied playwriting career, Frank McGuinness has made extensive use of music from a plurality of genres. Music plays a variety of roles in the plays, supporting and enriching dramatic themes and moods. The music of Irish English, particularly the music of his native Donegal, is also an important element, often used in contrast to accents from other areas and classes. Music in a McGuinness play may be diegetic or incidental. Music and the music of language may involve counterpoint, balance, underscoring, delight, or a contrast to surrounding silence. "Donegal" (2016) continues McGuinness's habit of incorporating musical works of various origins and styles, but it also includes pieces co-created by Kevin Doherty (music) and McGuinness (lyrics). It is the latest evidence that in a McGuinness play music and musical language carry meanings important to the drama.
