Playing With Fire
An epic and provocative play about multi-racial Britain, from the UK's leading political playwright.
When the District Council of Wyverdale fails to satisfy a government audit, New Labour high-flyer Alex Clifton is despatched from the capital to formulate a robust recovery plan. But racial tensions soar and good intentions have fatal consequences, as what begins as a comedy of misunderstanding soon becomes a chilling drama about multicultural Britain.
David Edgar's play Playing With Fire was first staged at the National Theatre, London, in 2005.
