Two plays from the acclaimed playwright debbie tucker green.

trade is a short play dealing with the controversial topic of female sex tourism.

Three black women on a Caribbean island: a hip young thing from London, an older tourist and a resident native. One subject. Two worlds. Three points of view.

trade was first performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company as part of the 2005 New Work Festival in the Swan Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon, in October 2005. (An earlier version of the play was performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company as part of the 2004 New Work Festival at The Other Place, Stratford-upon-Avon, in October 2004, and Soho Theatre, London, in March 2005).

generations is a 30-minute drama about three generations of a black South African family who contest their relative culinary skills. But food isn't the only topic and the family numbers are declining...

generations was first seen as a Platform performance at the National Theatre, London, on 30 June 2005. The play was revived at the Young Vic, London, in March 2007, in a production directed by Sacha Wares.

Both plays are also available in the collection debbie tucker green plays: one.

Press Quotes

'poetry laced with shards of broken glass... short, sharp and pungent theatre'

Guardian

'packs more into its single intense act than most plays twice its duration manage... shocking emotional violence... a riveting examination of the queasy relationship between two parts of our economically divided world. A small wonder'

The Times

'an entire continent made personal in debbie tucker green's devastating play... runs for fewer than 30 minutes, but will last you a lifetime'
