This Restless House, Paperback (April 2016)
A title that opens with Agamemnon sacrificing his daughter to the gods; an act which sets in motion a bloody cycle of revenge and counter-revenge. When he in turn is killed at the hands of his wife, their son Orestes takes up the mantle of avenging his father, continuing the bloodshed until peace is ultimately found in the rule of law.
How to Hold Your Breath, Paperback (February 2015)
Because we live in Europe. Because nothing really bad happens. The worst is a bit of an inconvenience. Perhaps not such a good mini break. But really in the grand scheme of life, not so bad. Starting with a seemingly innocent one night stand, this dark, witty and magical play by Zinnie Harris dives into our recent European history.
Bomb: A Partial History, Paperback (February 2012)
Ten short plays by contemporary dramatists, woven together with fragments of newsreel and verbatim testimony, that offer a probing account of the propagation of nuclear weapons - and the possibility of humanity destroying itself. A vivid, serious and highly theatrical examination of one of the most important political issues of our time.
