Hitchcock Blonde by Terry Johnson

Book Description

First published to tie-in with the Royal Court Theatre's production in April 2003, with a cast including Alexander Delamere, Victoria Gay, Fiona Glascott and Rosamund Pike, this is the newly revised version of award-winning Terry Johnson's classic play. A media lecturer and his female protege find some deteriorated Hitchcock footage. It would appear they had discovered some early rushes but what film were they for and who is the mysterious blonde? Hitchcock Blonde is not a play about Alfred Hitchcock, though he may make a cameo appearance. Of the less familiar characters, one is likely to amuse, the other will behave appallingly in a theatrical film noir of genius, lust, death and voyeuristic obsession. 'On the face of it, Hitchcock Blonde is a play about Alfred Hitchcock and women, about sex and desire, and what happens when you have either without the other. It is also a detective story, a biographical fantasy, an intellectual comedy...a play about life in films and films in life, about predators and victims...' Sunday Times

Books By Author Terry Johnson

Piano / Forte by Terry Johnson Piano / Forte, Paperback (September 2006)

Piano/Forte is a bold new comedy staged at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in September 2006. On the eve of his wedding to the glamorous Dawn, Clifford's plans for a joyous celebration are thrown into turmoil by the return home of his estranged daughter Louise. Her plans to exact revenge prove to have explosive consequences.

Actions by Terry Johnson Actions, Paperback (March 2004)

Actors need actions. They cannot "act" adjectives, they need verbs; they need an aim to achieve, an action to perform. This is a thesaurus of active verbs with which the actor can refine the action-word until she or her hits exactly the right one to help make the action come alive.
