Product Description

Review

A superb stage version of Pat Barker's award-winning First World War novel... the material - presented through the physical immediacy of theatre - seems to get through to your neurological (as well as emotional, psychological and intellectual) depths... Gutting and unmissable. --Independent

Wright is a writer who specialises in translating real-life characters into truthfully embodied theatrical ones... A powerful stage version of Pat Barker's First World War novel. --The Stage

Nicholas Wright's deeply moving play stays true to Barker's vision while highlighting its own chosen themes of companionship, guilt and inequality... This humane and enriching play raises endless questions about the impact of war on individuals.... Superb. --Guardian --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

Craiglockhart, a hospital for officers ravaged by their experiences in trench warfare, is the setting for Pat Barker's 'Regeneration'. Here the poet Siegfried Sassoon, author of an article condemning the war, came under the care of psychiatrist W.H.R Rivers whose duty, as he saw it, was to return Sassoon to all the horrors of the Front, because Sassoon was sane, was healthy – and he had made a commitment. But while the encounter of Sassoon and Rivers is central to 'Regeneration', it is the exploration of the character of Rivers himself, the agony of the other patients and the insights into their minds, that makes this a tour-de-force. A superb novel related with chilling clarity and vivid compassion.
