Over 50 years after his first appearance on the theatre scene,
Edward Bond remains a hugely significant figure in the history of
modern British playwriting. His plays are the subject of much
debate and frequent misinterpretation, with his extensive use of
allegory and metaphor to comment on the state of society and
humanity in general leading to many academics, theatre
practitioners and students trying - and often failing - to make
sense of his plays over the years. In this unique collection, David
Tuaillon puts these pressing questions and mysteries to Edward Bond
himself, provoking answers to some of his most elusive dramatic
material, and covering an extraordinary range of plays and subjects
with real clarity. With a particular focus on Bond's later plays,
about which much less has been written, this book draws together
very many questions and issues within a thematic structure, while
observing chronology within that. Edward Bond: The Playwright
Speaks is potentially the most comprehensive, precise and clear
account of the playwright's work and time in the theatre to date,
distilling years and schools of thought into one single volume.
Published to mark the 50th anniversary of the first performance of
Edward Bond's Saved at the Royal Court Theatre in 1965.
