Format: Paperback
If you have ever heard of the time before Brown, Blair, Major and Thatcher, or if you ever just wondered what Alfie thought it was all about, these two superb plays will bring it all back home. Dalton was there, writing his beautifully observed dialogue with style, humour and pathos. He writes in the fullness of his humanity about truth to real experience. He writes about the dignity of the lives and language of 'ordinary' people but making us feel extraordinary. Sure, Dalton's characters do stuff like occupy factories and talk about being trade union stewards, but that's what some of us did at that time. If you read Moliere or Thomas Middleton people did strange things then too, but we also see reflections of ourselves, and the reflection Dalton shows us feels like the truth. Dalton was clearly never one to toe the party line, but that makes his world view more compelling and out of its time for us now - like Beckett we can see the crazy but we can see the humanity too, and we smile, pity, laugh, and identify so that we come away bigger and more generous. Two minor masterpieces indeed.
