    '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 be undisputed.'... more...

Harold Pinter Plaintiffs and Defendants Exceptionally good... the play gave such a rending... 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.

  • Caligula and Other Playsby Albert Camus; Stuart Gilbert

    Penguin Books Ltd 2013; US$ 18.32

    Caligula reveals some aspects of the existential notion of 'the absurd' by portraying an emperor so mighty and so desperate in his search for freedom that he inevitably destroys gods, men and himself.
