(1871-1909)
Born April 16, 1871 in a suburb of Dublin, was educated at Trinity College Dublin. After graduating from college while studying music, then carried away by criticism. In 1898, met in Paris with WB Yeats, who suggested Shingu to study the life of the Irish - people Erenskih Islands. In 1907, Singh has published a book of essays Erenskie Islands (The Aran Islands).
The first one-act play Singh in the twilight of the valley (In the Shadow of the Glen) was set in 1903 by the Irish national theater company, led by Yeats. It was followed by galloping to the sea (Riders to the Sea, 1904) and three-act Channel saints (The Well of the Saints, 1905). In 1904, Singh, along with Yeats and A. Gregory became one of the directors 'Theater Abbey'.

Galloping towards the sea and the Well of the saints have been criticized for allegedly disrespectful attitude to the Irish people. Play Udaloi fellow - the pride of the West (The Playboy of the Western World; rus. translate K. Chukovsky called Hero, 1923) was published in 1907, when the country has inflamed political passions, and many of the Irish in a long time, very wary of the play and its author. It is told with humor about a boy who boasted in a place where no one knows what killed his father. They are all looking at him with awe, especially the women, but the lad completely loses face when the father appears on the stage.

Published in 1909 wedding tinker (The Tinker's Weddind) 'Theater Abbey' to the formulation did not take. Singh died in Dublin on March 24, 1909, and his last play, Deirdre - Daughter of sorrows (Deirdre of the Sorrows), remained unfinished, but was set in 1910.

The main achievement of Singh - a rhythmic musical and poetic language of his peasant and folkloric characters, which makes a fascinating effect. An outstanding feature of his style is humor, sometimes sarcastic, bitter. Singh's character in the play have a unique and memorable originality.
