About this product
- DescriptionIn this volume of his works, Bolt develops along more Brechtian lines. Vivat! Vivat Regina! (1970), with its broad historical canvas and skilful theatrical invention, reminded people of the power possessed by the author of A Man for All Seasons. Performed at the National Theatre, State of Revolution (1977) proves his point that Lenin was an admirable man 'possessed by a terribly wrong idea'. The collection includes Bolt's children's play, The Thwarting of Baron Bolligrew (1965).
- Author BiographyRobert Bolt was one of England's truly great post-war dramatists. Since leaving a teaching career in the 1950s, Bolt wrote plays that were both critical and popular successes, developing a theme that runs throughout his work - that of the conflict between a person and the society in which they live. Bolt's first and most famous success was 'A Man For All Seasons', which he also adapted for the screen, about the conflict between Sir Thomas More and King Henry VIII. Bolt was also a film director and wrote award winning screenplays for some of the great films of the 20th century, including Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor Zhivago and The Mission. He died in 1995.
