Abstract in Portuguese
A presente dissertação examina a transposição da biografia para o palco em três peças do autor irlandês Thomas Kilroy: Double Cross (1986), The Secret Fall of Constance Wilde (1997) e My Scandalous Life (2004), analisando o modo como o dramaturgo adaptou os registros históricos para a linguagem teatral e explorou as lacunas biográficas por meio de elementos ficcionais; e de que forma foram empregados os recursos épicos na forma dramática. Double Cross baseia-se em duas figuras históricas, Brendan Bracken e William Joyce, que atuaram em lados opostos durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial. The Secret Fall of Constance Wilde transpõe para o teatro episódios da vida de Constance, esposa de Oscar Wilde. O monólogo My Scandalous Life retoma a personagem Lord Alfred Douglas, presente em The Secret Fall of Constance Wilde.

Abstract in English
The present dissertation examines the transposition from biography to stage in three plays by Thomas Kilroy: Double Cross (1986), The Secret Fall of Constance Wilde (1997) e My Scandalous Life (2004), analyzing how the Irish playwright adapted the historical records for theatrical language and filled in the biographical gaps through fictional elements; and how epic features were used in dramatic form. Double Cross is based on two historical figures, Brendan Bracken and William Joyce, who were on opposite sides during the Second World War. The Secret Fall of Constance Wilde transposes events of Constances life, Oscar Wildes wife, to the stage. The monologue My Scandalous Life concentrates on Lord Alfred Douglas, also present in The Secret Fall of Constance Wilde.
