Book Description

13 Nov 2003 Contemporary Dramatists
A collection of major play adaptations by the author of Billy Elliott MR PUNTILA: "Brecht's Puntila is the Jekyll and Hyde of the class war. When he's plastered this Finnish landowner drips with sugary human kindness; once sober again, he's a tyrannical bastard...Lee Hall mixes in-your-face contemporary slang with endearing jokes...It's not often that you can write 'Bertolt Brecht' and 'knockabout fun' in the same sentence" - Paul Taylor, Independent MOTHER COURAGE: For Mother Courage, war is strictly business - a chance to trade in boots and brandy. She's determined to profit from the thirty years war, while protecting her family from the bloodshed that surrounds them. This is an updated, playable translation. THE GOOD HOPE: A voyage of the Good Hope is a journey on which the life of an entire community depends. A storm rages, the women and children wait ashore, the boat follows the Greenland catch...A SERVANT TO TWO MASTERS: "is wildly and inventively farcical. More surprisingly still, it also contrives to find passages of deep feeling amid the comic mayhem...the tremendously promising Lee Hall, who has come up with a superb new version of the play that brilliantly combines hilarity and darkness". Daily Telegraph
