More About the Author

Andrew Fusek Peters and Polly Peters have written and edited over 110 books for all ages, many critically acclaimed, with rights and co-editions sold worldwide. Their books have been translated into 17 languages. These include poetry collections, picture books, storybooks, anthologies, plays, graphic novels, verse novels and fiction.

Titles include Andrew's new nature writing memoir Dip, a year of Wild Swims and Stories from the Borderlands, published by Rider Books {Random House}. Dip has featured in You Magazine, Radio 4 Midweek 'A lyrical book' Libby Purves, and on the BBC One Show and the BBC World Service Outlook programme, in the Independent and the Scotsman.

'The writing is so lyrical, full of metaphor, indeed there are moments when words and water fuse together.' Matt Haig, Independent

'Dip tells of a total immersion in Nature, a courageous trust in its restorative powers and an authentic experience of the wild. This is a damn good read.' Paul Evans, Guardian Country Diarist

'the outdoor tradition of English writing stretches by way of Gilbert White and Borrow, Cobbett, Jefferies and Hudson, through Williamson to those few authentic outdoor and nature writers - Jim Crumley, Mark Cocker, Paul Evans, Andrew Fusek Peters - of the present day.' Jim Perrin, Great Outdoors Magazine

Further info can be found on Andrew's new website for photography and writing for adults

Product Description


'[Twisted and Much Ado About Clubbing are] valuable for their sheer inventiveness and fascinating

staging techniques. Much of the material here could be used in drama or PHSE lessons and if thoughts tend towards larger scale performance, scrupulous suggestions for stage-crafting make all things seem possible, even on limited resources ... Where [Angelcake and Dragon Chaser] succeed is in their clever multiple discourses, including choral work, soliloquy and dramatic monologue.' - Times Educational Supplement, 5/10/01

...excellent resource for a school or youth club drama group...Whole ranges of young people's feelings are covered in a lively and often funny fashion. (Children's Book News)

... a series of plays that are both vibrant and truthful, living up the title Plays with Attitude...These are writers who know their craft and their audeince. (Armadillo)

This is an enterprising series of completely original plays on hard-hitting themes for teenagers. (Books Magazine) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
This play incorporates the basic key elements of drama. Speech, freeze frames, flash backs, costume the works!
However when it comes to set it can be INCREDIBLY simple or complex depending on the age of the group. The plays is aimed at students aged 12 and over. And to be completely honest i believe that it could be done with adults as well to be performed in an educational way to students (teenagers) or parents of teenagers. Overall a fun play with a deep dark side and truly thrilling to work with.

By Mr. M. Hornsey on 5 Nov. 2012
Format: Paperback
As a drama teacher across key stages 3, 4 & 5, I have found this play, and indeed the whole "plays with attitude" series very enjoyable to work with and engaging for the students. The language is punchy and the stories are episodic, which keeps the pace up and holds their attention far better than wordy, laborious plays would.
