Edgar: Shorts

By David Edgar

Paperback £12.99£10.39

A collection of shorter plays from stage and television by one of the UK's foremost political playwrights.

Included are:

Blood Sports, five hilarious sketches on sporting subjects
Ball Boys, an unlikely match between Marx and tennis
Baby Love, a powerful and moving account of a baby-snatcher
The National Theatre, 'Three Sisters' in a strip club
The Midas Connection, an ironic look at gold dealing

Especially suitable for performances by groups with limited time and/or resources, all the pieces engage – however wryly – with important issues. The whole collection sheds fascinating new light on Edgar the dramatist.
