Parker Plays 1 - Spokesong & Catchpenny Twist & Nightshade & Pratt's Fall $27.99

Stewart Parker

Published by Methuen

This volume includes four plays ...

Spokesong - 'A dazzling play that combines warmth of sentiment with great emotional strength and intellectual playfulness ... a gorgeously rich play' - New York Post

Catchpenny Twist -'The most appealing thing about Parker's work is the ease with which he blends lunatic humour with a gritty sense of reality. He's done it before in Spokesong and he does it again in this hard, ribald and hilarious little play' - Sunday Times

Nightshade - 'A rare delight ... A mixture of experiment, inventiveness, wit, sheer theatricality, obscure motifs and elements that are deeply moving ... It is a highly complex play; there is no story that is told in sequence, no meaning that can be easily grasped. But as theatre it is superb' - Hibernia

Pratt's Fall - 'A delicate, unusual and rather beautiful vehicle ... a fascinating and delightful entertainment ... Parker's chosen approach is to tackle serious themes - often related to the experience of his native Northern Ireland - through a kind of lyrical comedy, deceptively lightweight, fast-moving, and slightly surreal' - Sunday Standard
