From West End
Another Country is set in an English public school in the early 1930's where future leaders are being prepared for their roles in the ruling class. Two of the central characters are outsiders: Guy Bennett is coming to terms with homosexuality and Tommy Judd is a committed Marxist. Judd wants to abolish the whole system of British life; Bennett wants a successful career within it. The school and the system have traditional ways of dealing with rebels.
"Subtle [and] absorbing." - London Daily Mail.
"A genuinely exciting political play. His acerbic wit finds a perfect match in the precocious self importance of his subjects." - Time Out.
Another Country was first presented at the Greenwich Theatre in London on November 5, 1981. It was directed by Stuart Burge.
