Dirty Story and other plays

By John Patrick Shanley

Paperback £16.99

Three plays from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Doubt.

In Dirty Story a couple of sadomasochistic writers fight over rights to their New York City loft in what turns out to be a satire of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

'Astonishing...the analysis of the Middle East in this play is dead on, exactly perfectly pitched' Tony Kushner

In the dark comedy Where's My Money?, Shanley takes on marriage, infidelity, and divorce lawyers.

And in Sailor's Song, love becomes an act of courage in a seaside romance about the certainty of death, the brevity of youth, and the importance of now.
