Contractions

By Mike Bartlett

Paperback £11.99

An ink-black comedy about the boundaries between work and play.

Emma's been seeing Darren. She thinks she's in love. Her boss thinks she's in breach of contract. The situation needs to be resolved.

Mike Bartlett's stage play Contractions was first performed at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in May 2008. It was developed from an earlier radio play, Love Contract, first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in November 2007.

This edition is published by Methuen Drama, an imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing Plc.
