Kevin Elyot: Four Plays

By Kevin Elyot

Paperback £14.99£11.99

EPUB £14.99£11.99

A collection of plays from the acclaimed author of My Night With Reg, spanning twenty years of work from a playwright who brilliantly captured the comedy of pain.

Included in this volume are:

Coming Clean (Bush Theatre, London, 1982), Elyot's first play, winner of the Samuel Beckett Award, an examination of infidelity within a gay relationship. 'A very funny and acute comedy about the gay life' Sunday Times. 'In time, it will be recognised as the first mature play about homosexuality' Mail on Sunday

My Night With Reg (Royal Court Theatre, London, 1994)
His breakthrough play, winner of the Evening Standard and Olivier Awards for Best Comedy, a heartbreaking play about the fragility of friendship, happiness and life itself. 'Sharply witty and humanely wise drama about gay manners and morals in the age of AIDS' Independent

The Day I Stood Still (National Theatre, London, 1998)
A poignantly funny drama about the heartbreak of unrequited love and the power of memories. 'What begins apparently as a very English comedy about avoiding the issue... ends as something both tragic and heartening' Sunday Times

Mouth to Mouth (Royal Court Theatre, 2001)
A brilliantly acerbic tragicomedy that transferred to the West End, starring Lindsay Duncan. 'An ingenious, brilliantly intricate work of art' Financial Times

Also included is a foreword by the author.

'There is an unsentimental compassion about Elyot's writing that is deeply affecting, and a sharp observation of contemporary life that is often richly comic' Daily Telegraph

'Guilt, loss, unrequited love – these are the themes we've come to expect from Kevin Elyot' The Times
