  • Rebecca Lenkiewicz: Plays 1by Rebecca Lenkiewicz

    Faber & Faber 2013; US$ 21.86

    The Night Season ' The Night Season is unusual; no politics, no issues, no history - just a bold attempt to grapple with the messy nature of living. It's also delightfully, rudely funny.' Financial Times 'Look out for the name Rebecca Lenkiewicz. It's once in a blue moon that a writer gets her second-ever play staged at the National. It's... more...

  • The Emigrants or A Trip to the Ohio, a Theatrical Farce (1817)by George Cumberland; G.E. Bentley

    The Edwin Mellen Press 2012; US$ 159.95

    George Cumberland’s unpublished and almost unrecorded farce of about 1817 called The Emigrants or A Trip to The Ohio amiably pokes fun at Yankees, Yorkshiremen, Irishmen, and Utopians, and it is a treasure-house of slang, such as “Obstropelous”. Its polymath author was a prolific artist, inventor, geologist, poet, political radical,... more...

  • Leavingby Vaclav Havel

    Faber & Faber 2013; US$ 14.57

    Chancellor Rieger is leaving office. But does leaving office necessarily mean that he, his mistress and his extended family have to leave the state villa, which has been their home for years? While his former secretary, and the former secretary to his former secretary, grapple with the mechanics of change and his family prepare to vace an uncertain... more...

  • Hecubaby Frank McGuinness; Euripides

    Faber & Faber 2013; US$ 13.11

    Children, lead this old woman outside. A slave like the rest of you, She once was your queen. Troy has fallen to the Greeks, and Hecuba, its beloved queen, is widowed and enslaved. She mourns her great city and the death of her husband, but when fresh horrors emerge, her grief turns to rage and a lust for revenge. A savage indictment... more...

  • 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. And family scandal within the cabinet has the potential to throw both the money-raisers and the money-spenders into chaos. This richly imagined ensemble play about British public life... more...

  • Simon Gray: Plays 1by Simon Gray

    Faber & Faber 2013; US$ 24.78

    Butley 'What is so wondrous about a play so basically defeatist and hurtful is its ability to be funny. The stark, unsentimental approach to the homosexual relationship, the cynical send-up of academic life, the skeptical view of the teacher-pupil associations are all stunningly illuminated by continuous explosions of sardonic, needling,... more...

  • Simon Gray: Plays 4by 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...

  • Simon Gray: Plays 3by Simon Gray

    Faber & Faber 2013; US$ 24.78

    'The brave little lives that Gray so compassionately illuminates could be lived by any of us, and that's why they arouse emotions that are anything but small.' New York Times on Quartermaine's Terms more...

  • Simon Gray: Plays 2by Simon Gray

    Faber & Faber 2013; US$ 24.78

    'A superbly written play, a funny play, an agonising play. It is, moreover, a play of truth and insight. A play to savour.' Punch on Otherwise Engaged 'Life in the theatre hasn't brought me anything more rewarding than directing Simon Gray's plays.' Harold Pinter Plaintiffs and Defendants Exceptionally good... the play gave such... more...

  • Aristophanic Comedy and the Challenge of Democratic Citizenshipby John Zumbrunnen

    Boydell & Brewer Group Ltd 2013; US$ 29.15

    Aristophanic Comedy and the Challenge of Democratic Citizenship finds in Aristophanes' comedies a complex comic disposition necessary for meeting the fundamental challenge of ordinary citizenship. That challenge, Zumbrunnen argues, emerges from the tension between two democratic impulses: a rebelliousness that resists all attempts to impose any form... more...
