  • 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

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...

  • Three Uses of the Knifeby David Mamet

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2013; US$ 13.00

    The purpose of theater, like magic like religion?ids to inspire cleansing awe. With bracing directness and aphoristic authority, one of our greatest living playwrights addresses the questions: What makes good drama? And why does drama matter in an age that is awash in information and entertainment? David Mamet believes that the tendency to dramatize... more...

  • John Webster, Renaissance Dramatistby David Coleman

    Edinburgh University Press 2010; US$ 29.00

    Transgressive and darkly brilliant, the drama of John Webster has long been recognised as one of the crowning glories of the English Renaissance. But this apparently idiosyncratic individual, fascinated by insanity, corruption, and the macabre, was also a successful businessman, involved in trade networks beyond the theatre, and writing most of his... more...
