Nichols Plays by Peter Nichols

Book Description

A rich selection from the best of Nichols' work up to and including his award-winning Privates on Parade A Day in the Death of Joe Egg is based on the author's experience of having a mentally handicapped child and won the John Whiting Award; The National Health was commissioned by Kenneth Tynan for the National theatre and follows the story of a Labour MP who goes into a state hospital suffering from a nervous collapse. It won the Evening Standard Best Play Award; Forget-me-not Lane is a trip down memory lane from the author's own childhood growing up in the West Country; Hearts and Flowers is a TV play about the rivalry between two brothers, one a school teacher living in Bristol the other a successful news journalist and their shared interest in a woman; Freeway is set in a traffic jam and attempts to answer the question of why the automobile has come to be seen to represent liberty incarnate in the modern era.

Books By Author Peter Nichols

Voyage for Madmen by Peter Nichols Voyage for Madmen, Paperback (May 2011)

In 1968, nine men - six Englishmen, two Frenchmen and an Italian - set out to try, a race born of coincidence of their timing. One didn't even know how to sail. This is a true story of the inaugural 1968 Golden Globe sailing race: the first single-handed non-stop circumnavigation of the world.

Oil and Ice by Peter Nichols Oil and Ice, Paperback / softback (September 2010)

In 1871, an entire fleet of whaling ships was caught in an arctic ice storm and destroyed. Though few lives were lost, the damage would forever shape one of America's most distinctive commodities: oil.

Moitessier by Peter Nichols Moitessier, Paperback (August 2005)

Moitessier, who navigated with a sextant using the sun, moon, and stars, who sailed with no radio, whose JOSHUA was rigged with discarded telephone poles for masts, came from a sailing world more distant from the modern ocean racer's than his was from Columbus's.
