Paul Godfrey is "so good, so nervy and alert with imagination and intelligence" (Sunday Times) Includes the plays: Inventing a New Colour "Godfrey's appealing first play is, with its ominous signs of disjunction, like a surrealist painting"(Guardian), Once in a While the Odd Thing Happens "A fictional-biographical account of Benjamin Britten...lyrical, poetic prose, sinuous, swift, eloquent and dramatic" (Sunday Times), A Bucket of Eels "Danger gives Paul Godfrey's wonderful play its drama. Six young people enter a Freudian forest of their own imaginings" (Financial Times), The Blue Ball "An enquiry into the magic of space exploration...a rather interesting, idiosyncratic and well written play" (Observer) is an imaginative investigation of the experience of Space researched by the playwright among the astronauts themselves. This ambitious play questions the politics of a culture in which the wondrous is rendered mundane and what seems commonplace is rendered absurd. The Blue Ball was commissioned by the Royal National Theatre and received its premiere at the Cottesloe Theatre in 1995.
