Description
Howard Barker is one of the most significant and contraversial dramatists of his time. His plays challenge, unsettle and expose. The plays in this volume examine collisions of culture, gender and creed at moments of turmoil, developing the tragic form Barker defines as Theatre of Catastrophe. "Claw" concerns an underprivileged young man watching his so-called superiors. "Ursula" is Barker's typically intriguing take on the legend of St Ursula. "He Stumbled" is a fable concerning an anatomist and a dying king. "In The Love of a Good Man" we witness the mass burial of the dead.
