Wesker's Social Plays - Denial & When God Wanted A Son & The Kitchen & Rocking Horse & More
Published by Oberon
The Collection also contains Wesker's latest play The Rocking Horse Kid, about a black boy who wants to go round the world on a horse, the magical play for children Voices on the Wind
And one of his most controversial plays - Denial about 'the false memory syndrome' declared by an irate French critic of the Paris production '...a dangerous play. Wesker is a dangerous playwright'
He has also been described as 'a melancholy optimist' as evidenced by another of the plays in this volume - When God wanted a Son which challengingly explores the possibility that anti-Semitism, like stupidity, is in the bloodstream of human nature and here to stay
Few playwrights dare be as politically incorrect as Wesker
