  • Gethsemaneby David Hare

    Faber & Faber 2013; US$ 14.57

    Nothing is more important to a modern political party than fund-raising. But the values of the donors can't always coincide with the professed beliefs of the party.

  • Simon Gray: Plays 1by Simon Gray

    Faber & Faber 2013; US$ 24.78

    'Sharp, funny and clever . . . What a pleasure to re-encounter a play that combines unabashed intelligence and zinging wit with a rare generosity of spirit.' Daily Telegraph on The Common Pursuit 'Gray's stature as one of the handful of great tragi-comic English dramatists of the second half of the twentieth century would appear now to... more...

  • John Webster, Renaissance Dramatistby David Coleman

    Edinburgh University Press 2010; US$ 119.99

  • Shakespeare and Co.by Stanley Wells
