Intimacy and other plays

By Thomas Bradshaw

Paperback £19.99

Outrageous and bold, Thomas Bradshaw’s Intimacy is a revealing comedy about race, sex, and familiarity in the suburbs.

Interracial couple Jerry and Pat enjoy a good-natured relationship with their recently widowed, white evangelical neighbor James, borrowing tools and even sharing the same contractor. Everything's suburban bliss—that is, until a horrified James discovers his neighbors' daughter Janet is a budding porn star...

This fiercely provocative and funny collection also includes Dawn, Fulfillment, Southern Promises, Job, Strom Thurmond Is Not a Racist, Lecture on the Blues and Purity.

Press Quotes

'Bradshaw has proved in play after play that he has a confident vision of the theater that is his own. The politically incorrect plots jump merrily from one outrage to another, never pausing to explain motivation or linger on subtext. His dramas ask: What would happen if every dark urge, lingering resentment and unedited ugly insult that popped into your head came spilling out of your mouth? ... No playwright applies as ruthlessly Hitchcock's definition of drama as 'life with the boring parts taken out.'
