If you want to learn a lot more about The Quare Fellow, including a biog of Brendan Behan, a first-person account of how the jails were at the time and much more on the play, you can download a big pdf file [pdf] with it all in at the Oxford Stage Company’s website, or I have stuck a copy on this website here [pdf] in which our Kath is described for some reason as an “improbable goddess”.
