Marriage in Disguise by Nicholas Dromgoole
Book DescriptionMoliere's plays transformed the writing of 17th century comedy, savagely satirising the Establishment of his day, and surviving only because he had the unwavering support of Louis XIV. His private life was even more controversial than his plays. Did he really tumble in and out of bed with so many beautiful people of both sexes? Did he marry his own daughter? Why did the Church refuse to bury him? Nicholas Dromgoole's play gives us fresh insight into this astonishing artist.

Role of the Critic, Hardback (June 2010)
Of interest to students, academics, practitioners and theatre buffs.
Playwright as Rebel, Hardback (August 2001)
Why are there so few high points in the history of theatre? What was it about Ancient Greek theatre, Elizabethan dramaturgy and Racine's 17th-century France that made them particularly able to respond to and create high points in tragic drama?
Ackland: Plays One, Paperback (May 1997)» View all books by Nicholas Dromgoole
Two plays -- The Dark River and After October -- by a master of the British stage. In The Dark River, set in the late 1930s, the flamboyant characters are cocooned in a Thames backwater, ignoring the turbulent events of a politically unstable Europe. After October is Ackland's most personal, autobiographical play.
