Penhall Plays by Joe Penhall

Book Description

"Joe Penhall belongs to the new wave of dramatists that has flooded British theatre with exciting work in recent years ...I have a hunch that his might prove the more enduring talent" (Daily Telegraph) Some Voices: 'The most thrilling playwriting debut in years...The writing is razor-sharp, sensitive, quietly eloquent, full of the touchingly drab poetry of lost lives' (Sunday Times); Pale Horse: 'His second Court play is as compelling and extraordinary as his first ...as taut, tight and atmospheric as Macbeth' (Observer); Love and Understanding: 'This is one of the best plays I've seen, ever, at this powerhouse of new writing ...tough, eloquent, bruising' (Sunday Times); The Bullet: 'A Death of a Salesman for Britain in the nineties, and it is typical of Penhall's grace as a writer that it consciously echoes Arthur Miller while also emerging as an entirely distinctive work' (Daily Telegraph)
