After the rejection of at least one play 'The Reapers' was the first Deevy play to be accepted and staged in the Abbey.
There are no known surviving copies of any manuscript.
What has survived are production details from the Abbey staging, a range of reviews and some correspondence.
Details of the Abbey production and the response it received from the critics can be explored from here. In 'What do we know about 'The Reapers'?' Dr. Shelly Troupe draws on the available material to conduct a 'Theatre Studies Investigation' and piece together a picture of the play's narrative, its themes and how it was performed.
