About this product
- DescriptionThe third volume in an anthology series of the most original and exciting new plays for the nineties Europe, set in an international rail station linking several countries examines the cultural shifts of the post Berlin wall years and is a fierce, compassionate mightily ambitious drama...There is a sharp analytic intelligence...about this gripping play. (The Scotsman) Uganda is set in a front sitting room but explores children's love of their fathers, it won the Thames Television Best Play Award in 1994 and confirms my feeling that Johnson is on the threshold of great things (Guardian). Some Voices by Joe Penhall, looks at mental illness and the love between two brothers (it has since been made into a feature film), it is haunting and jazzily contemporary. Penhall's post-Pinter is promising (Observer). Ashes and Sand reflects on the world of school leavers in England's Deep South and won the George Devine Award in 1994: Judy Upton's vicious little hand grenade of a play...takes us into the bleak world of a violent girl gang living in a seaside resort. (Independent)
