Product Description

Review

This isn't just a social document about how the clipped repressions of the 1950s gave way to the freedoms of today, but a marvellous, sad and blisteringly funny account of the fear of being unloved, of never being able to be yourself, of waking in the night with your spouse or lover by your side and feeling like the loneliest person in the world. --Guardian

Alexi Kaye Campbell's sharp, funny and deeply affecting debut play...a powerful, essential evening...a remarkable debut from a daring dramatist. --Telegraph

Full of warmth and humour...We're left with an overwhelming sense of humanity and possibility...This is a beautiful, hopeful play about the potential for societies and individuals to grow, and the sadness that surrounds those who cannot. --whatsonstage.com

About the Author

In November 2008 Alexi Kaye Campbell's first play, The Pride, was produced for the Royal Court Theatre Upstairs for which he was awarded The Critics' Circle Prize for Most Promising Playwright and the John Whiting Award for Best New Play. The production, directed by Jamie Lloyd, was also awarded a Laurence Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in an affiliate theatre. In January 2010 The Pride transferred to America and was produced for the MCC Theater in New York and directed by Joe Mantello. The cast included Ben Whishaw, Andrea Riseborough and Hugh Dancy. This production was nominated for a Drama League Award for 'Distinguished Production of a Play' and an Outer Critics Circle Award for 'Outstanding New Off-Broadway Play'. Kaye Campbell's second play, Apologia, was produced at The Bush Theatre in the summer of 2009, directed by Josie Rourke. Apologia was short-listed for The John Whiting Award and nominated for Best Theatre Play at the Writers Guild Awards 2009. Kaye Campbell's third play, The Faith Machine, premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in August 2011 directed by Jamie Lloyd and starring Hayley Atwell. His fourth play Bracken Moor premiered at the Tricycle Theatre, London in June 2013. All of these plays are published by Nick Hern Books. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I was fortunate enough to watch this brilliant play in London and immediately bought the book. Thought-provoking, touching, unsettling and warm. You come out a better person after reading it.

I received the play promptly. It is a fine piece of drama, which is very thought-provoking. I wish I had seen it in NYC.

not satisfied. 20 Oct 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Seriously? Cover is not thick and strong. So it seems it will be broken soon. Also the pages.
The price was cheap though, not satisfied.
