Description - The Theatre of Martin Crimp by Aleks Sierz

A guide to all of the plays of Martin Crimp. For a decade, Martin Crimp has been in the vanguard of new writing for the British stage. His main stage plays include Dealing with Clair, The Treatment, Attempts on Her Life, The Country, and Cruel and Tender, with his 1997 masterpiece, Attempts on Her Life, arguably being one of the best plays of the past quarter century. By the author of the landmark study of contemporary British drama, In-Yer-Face Theatre, this is the first study of Martin Crimp's work for stage and radio. Arguing that Crimp is one of the most acute satirists of contemporary British society, Aleks Sierz provides an accessible and fascinating account of the playwright's work. As well as an account of each of Crimp's plays and an analysis of his oeuvre, the volume includes a wide-ranging interview with Crimp himself and interviews with all the key directors responsible for staging his work, including Sam Walters, Katie Mitchell, James Mcdonald and Lindsay Posner.
