Edward Bond

Published by Methuen

Bond Plays 10 brings together four previously unpublished plays, one previously published play, and a comprehensive introduction by the author


Bond takes from the Greek and Jacobean drama the fundamental classical problems of the family and war to vividly picture our collapsing society

A heroine, has committed a terrible act and has been exiled

When she meets someone from her past, she is forcefully confronted by the broken society that drove her to commit her crimes

The Testament of this Day

This is Bond's third original radio drama, an arresting drama about the world today

A young man embarks on two journeys, though he is in control of only one

He soon discovers there is no going back, from either

The Price of One

This is set in among city ruins in a war zone where an occupying soldier carries a baby he has rescued from the rubble and dust

He meets a woman carrying a baby of her own

What ensues is a struggle between two enemies demanding justice in the midst of war

A modern tragedy, this play is an exploration of eternity and madness and the supermarket culture

The Angry Roads

In a flat a teenage boy is sorting through play things from his childhood, sorting through his past in search of the truth about an accident that destroyed his family

The Broken Bowl

This presents a portrait of a a ghost town

Outside a harsh wind rattles the windows

Inside, people go hungry and start boarding up their homes

When a young girl insists on feeding her imaginary friend, a bitter struggle for a future ensues for the power of the imagination to transform lives

The play is a moving and audacious modern fable that explores the impact of hard times on family life

The Volume also features an Introduction by the author that looks at theatre and culture in a post-Brexit referendum, post-truth and post-Trump era
