The latest collection of plays from "the female counterpart to Quentin Crisp" (Evening Standard) The Year of the Monkey, originally written for BBC Radio 3, comprises Bonfire Night, in which a daughter takes her sweet revenge; Arsehammers, where a grandson is sure that his grandfather's strange disappearances reveal supernatural powers, The Allotment, in which a quiet community of pensioners create a radical, anarchic commune by mistake, and The Year of the Monkey, where a mother yearns for some bad behaviour to puncture the boredom of her middle-class life.Designs for Living is a modern love story, challenging conventions of identity and sexuality.Sodom reveals Old Testament morality alive and well in middle England."Claire Dowie is the supreme advocate of rebellion. She debunks conformity, non-conformity - or almost anything which can be defined" - The Stage"She makes you laugh as she kicks you in the teeth" - Guardian
