Coastal Disturbances: four plays

By Tina Howe

Paperback £16.99

There is limited availability of this title. Please enquire before placing your order.

Tina Howe has said that her aim is "to present a lovely exterior, then seduce the audience into the dark and mysterious places inside." The worlds she creates overflow with hilarious, outlandish, vivid life – wittily imagined, eloquently rendered, fearlessly explored. Their inhabitants are absurd, anguished, gallant.

Alongside the title play, the collection also includes Museum, The Art of Dining and Painting Churches.

Press Quotes

'The tone is Chekhovian. Howe captures the same edgy surface of false hilarity, the same unutterable sadness beneath it and the indomitable valour beneath both'
