Steve Waters: Shorts

Five Plays

By Steve Waters

Ebook £12.99£10.39

Five short plays from acclaimed playwright Steve Waters, all of them deeply personal accounts of his attempts to make sense of twenty-first-century Britain and an ever-changing world.

From the migrant crisis in Europe to climate change and the increasing urbanisation of our green spaces, Waters turns his sensitive, thoughtful eye to the complex and challenging issues that face us today, moving from the personal to the political, and from the local to the global.

Out of Your Knowledge explores our changing attitudes towards the landscape as Waters retraces the journey of John Clare, the nineteenth-century English poet who escaped his lunatic asylum in Essex and walked for over a hundred miles to reach his home village.

Told by a woman killed in a cycling accident, Death of a Cyclist is a poignant, bleakly comic monologue that imagines the moments after death, and our struggle to come to terms with the biggest shock of all.

Set against the low hum of the War on Terror, Why Can't We Live Together? is a kaleidoscopic vision of our times through the lives of one man and one woman.

In a Vulnerable Place is a monologue documenting Waters' own journey from the Norfolk Broads to the steppes of Mongolia to explore, first hand, what is happening to the natural world and the human heart.

Finally, The Play About Calais, based on Waters' own visit to the 'Jungle' refugee camp in Calais and the people he met along the way, is an attempt to make sense of one of the most complex and divisive issues of our times.

This collection is available only as an ebook. The five individual plays are also available as separate ebooks.
