Product description

Review

"""...as intimate and subtly plotted as a piece of chamber music"" Rachel Halliburton, The Evening Standard ""a play often patronised as an immature melodrama, one that Chekhov himself described as ""a pudding"", has the quirkiness, the subtlety, the unpredictable touches of human truth we associate with the great works that followed."" Benedict Nightingale, The Times " --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

"David Harrower (born in 1966 in Edinburgh) is a Scottish playwright who (as of 2005) lives in Glasgow. Harrower's first play, Knives in Hens, which premiered at Edinburgh's Traverse Theatre in 1995, was considered a critical and popular success. It deals with a relationship triangle in a rural setting, and a woman's internal quest to find out what she wants from life. Subsequent plays include Kill the Old Torture Their Young (Traverse, 1998), which follows a disparate group of characters across an unnamed city, mixing realism with poetry and fantasy. Presence (Royal Court Theatre Upstairs, April 2001) takes another look at the Beatles' legendary residency at the Star-Club in Hamburg on the eve of their success, and Dark Earth (Traverse, August 2003) begins as a broad comedy and turns into a speculation about the meaning of history and the land. In 2005, his play Blackbird was produced by the Edinburgh International Festival, directed by Peter Stein and transferred in February 2006 to the Albery Theatre in London's West End [1]. It depicts the meeting between a young woman and a middle-aged man with whom, fifteen years earlier, at the age of 12, she had had a sexual relationship. In April 2008 the play was revived by David Grindley at the Rose Theatre, Kingston prior to a national tour [2]. In 2011, this play was produced by Rogue Machine in Los Angeles. This production won the LA Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Writing and Lead Performance by Sam Anderson. His most recent work is 365, presented at the Edinburgh International Festival in 2008, directed by Vicky Featherstone. This recounts the stories of 14 young people who have been in care are now living on their own in 'practice flats'. It was subsequently performed in London at the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith In 2011, He presented a new version of Gogol's classic text, The Government Inspector at London's Young Vic Theatre, directed by Richard Jones, starring The Mighty Boosh's Julian Barratt and Smack the Pony's Doon Mackichan and Kyle Soller.
