Humpty Dumpty and other plays

By Eric Bogosian

Paperback £16.99

Three plays from one of the most singular and exhilarating commentators on American life.

In Humpty Dumpty (2f 3m), five friends gather for a holiday at a mountain getaway where unforeseen events bring them to the brink of the end of the world.

Griller (4f 5m) is set in a New Jersey backyard, where a barbecue gathering turns sinister and deadly.

Red Angel (1f 1m) is based on Von Sternberg's The Blue Angel, reset on a college campus in 1990's New England.
