The latest volume in Oberon's Howard Barker series comprises the plays Judith, (Uncle) Vanya, A House of Correction and Hurts Given and Received. Howard Barker is an internationally renowned dramatist. There has been a recent resurgence of presentations of his plays in Britain, with particularly acclaimed productions at the Arcola and the Hackney Empire. He has a sizable following on the European mainland. Judith tells the story from the Biblical Apocrypha of the Jewish heroine Judith and the conquering Babylonian general Holofernes. (Uncle) Vanya is Barker's take on Chekhov's tragicomic masterpiece, while A House of Correction is set on the eve of a world war. Hurts Given and Received is one of Barker's newest plays, premiered in 2010.

Product Description

Review

If you buy this collection, do it for (Uncle) Vanya, a dazzlingly intellectual rewrite of the Chekhov 1897 work of the less parenthetic name. At once critical and in awe of the Russian dramatist, Barker interrogates the balance between culture and instinct. His characters are confused by the literary symbolism which surrounds them, hearing the crash of the waves yet unable to place the sea. Tantalisingly erudite, these poetic pieces are certainly worth a read. --Buzz Magazine
