Description - Betts: Plays Two by Torben Betts

Incarcerator Five Visions of the Faithful Silence and Violence the Last Days of Desire; The plays collected in this volume mark a radical change in the direction of Betts' writing as he moves away from social realism and black comedy towards language rich, theatrically-ambiguous tragedy. His hugely popular verse drama Incarcerator (White Bear and BAC) was a Time Out Critics choice, while his Five Visions of the Faithful (White Bear), is a series of uncompromising narratives exploring freedom, faith, death and desire. In Silence and Violence the wife of a war hero seduces a much-reviled sculptor as Betts examines the artist's quest for self-expression in a Philistine state. Betts' first radio play, The Last Days of Dosire, was commissioned by the BBC.
