Justine and Alan need to get away from it all. And what better way than camping on a farm in the Welsh countryside? So long as that's camping with all the luxuries, of course: real beds, wood burning stoves and an espresso machine. Sharing the rural idyll are seasoned campers Bridget and Rory, upwardly mobile Amanda and Alistair and a bunch of offspring. But canvas walls and adjacent tents leave little to the imagination in this entertaining expose of modern family life. Michael Wynne's Canvas premiered at the Minerva Theatre, Chichester, in May 2012.

Poppie - Die Drama (Afrikaans, Paperback): Elsa Joubert, Sandra Kotze Poppie - Die Drama (Afrikaans, Paperback)
Elsa Joubert, Sandra Kotze
R235 R202 Discovery Miles 2 020 Save R33 (14%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

Poppie is based in the ground-breaking 1978 novel by Elsa Joubert, Die swerfjare van Poppie Nongena, and was adapted for stage by Sandra Kotze. This story follows the trials and tribulations of Poppie, a black woman living in apartheid South Africa and her search for a better future for her children. Poppie is die storie van 'n swart vrou wat in die jare van apartheid met 'n man van die land getroud was. Soos met Joubert se reisbeskrywings, is hierdie drama 'n reis in vele opsigte - enersyds Poppie se lang swerftog op soek na standvastigheid en 'n veilige toekoms vir haar kinders, andersyds 'n reis van twee verwyderde kulture na mekaar toe, maar uiteindelik die reis na die hart van 'n medemens.

I choose to take back my life. My life. Medea is a wife and a mother. For the sake of her husband, Jason, she's left her home and borne two sons in exile. But when he abandons his family for a new life, Medea faces banishment and separation from her children. Cornered, she begs for one day's grace. It's time enough. She exacts an appalling revenge and destroys everything she holds dear. Ben Power's version of Euripides' tragedy Medea premiered at the National Theatre, London, in July 2014.

A "Streetcar Named Desire" (Paperback, Revised edition): Tennessee Williams A "Streetcar Named Desire" (Paperback, Revised edition)
Tennessee Williams; Edited by Michael Hooper, Patricia Hern 2
R225 Discovery Miles 2 250 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

A Streetcar Named Desire shows a turbulent confrontation between traditional values in the American South - an old-world graciousness and beauty running decoratively to seed - set against the rough-edged, aggressive materialism of the new world. Through the vividly characterised figures of Southern belle Blanche Dubois, seeking refuge from physical ugliness in decayed gentility, and her brutal brother-in-law Stanley Kowalski, Tennessee Williams dramatises his sense of the South's past as still active and often destructive in modern America. This revised edition features a new production history of the play that considers both stage and screen presentations, an updated bibliography and extensive notes on the language of the play. Commentary and notes by Patricia Hern and Michael Hooper.

Martin Crimp's Definitely the Bahamas was first staged at the Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond, in 1987. It was revived there with Play House, a new play, in March 2012.

Written specifically for GCSE students by academics in the field, the Methuen Drama GCSE Student Editions provide in-depth explanatory material alongside the play texts frequently studied at Key Stage 4. Whether for use in the classroom or independent study, these editions offer a fully comprehensive and lightly glossed play text with accompanying notes specifically directed towards readers of this age, which unravel essential topics and challenge all students to delve further into literary analysis. A well established modern classic, Willy Russell's Blood Brothers tells the story of Mickey and Eddie, twins separated at birth who grow up to lead very opposite lives, but which constantly and inevitably intersect. In addition to some on-page explanatory notes and the play text, this edition contains sub-headed analyses of themes, characters, context and dramatic devices, as well as background information on the playwright. The Methuen Drama GCSE Student Editions never lose sight of their readership, and offer students the confidence to engage with the material, explore their own interpretations, and improve their understanding of the works.

Harley Granville Barker, the most influential theatre-maker of his time, finds himself adrift in America during the Great War. Estranged from the theatre, and with his spirit almost broken by an acrimonious divorce, he seeks refuge in the relative obscurity of a quiet, backwater, Williamstown, Massachusetts. He finds comfort in the congeniality of his fellow refugees and in the courtesy of strangers - and gradually begins to regain his faith in humanity and his belief in the central role of Theatre in the civilised community.

A beautiful autumn day, rural England. A respected professor returns to his farmland which has been managed without him for many years. He brings with him a new, beautiful, young wife. Their arrival turns the lives of the residents and his family upside down forcing everyone to re-examine their choices. Old wounds are reopened, passions are awakened and thwarted ambitions bubble to the surface, threatening the lives of everyone involved. Re-uniting the team behind the critically acclaimed, sell-out successes of The Seagull and Three Sisters, award-winning writer Anya Reiss reimagines this tragicomic masterpiece in a stunning new version for the 21st century.

A comedian and writer, Wix has for the past few years been writing audition speeches for students at drama schools including RADA, LAMDA, Drama Centre and The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.

This is a collection of very funny and original audition speeches filling a significant gap in the market: made up of monologues for various age ranges, each with a running time of two to three minutes. The brevity in length makes these ideal for auditions or showcases and the variety in age and style encompasses different comedic approaches; from the very quirky to the more traditional - perfect for every type of performer.

The Boogeyman is afraid of the dark! The Tooth Fairy hates her job! The Wicked Witch isn't really so wicked! One hundred fantasy monologs reveal what characters like Cinderella and Captain Hook might really say if given the chance. It's fun, it's cool and it's offbeat to portray the "other side of the story" of these famous fantasy characters. Each monolog is delightfully preposterous and hilariously different. Fifty boys and fifty girls can choose the fantasy character of their choice. How does scissor-happy Rapunzel really feel about her long, long hair? Who is this not-so-jolly Santa Clause? And is Little Red Riding Hood a secret agent? A wide selection of monologs for classroom use, contests or as part of a variety show. Sample monologs: Shopping-Compulsive Cinderella, Desperate Housewife: Mrs. Clause, The Forgetful Fairy Godmother, Waterlogged Little mermald, Arachrophobic Spiderman, Humpty Dumpty: Assassinated, The Not-So Prince Charming, Hunchback of a Picky Dame.

Profoundly original yet insistent on the derivative quality of his work, transgressive yet affirmative of tradition, Robert Duncan (1919-1988) was a generative force among American poets, and his poetry and poetics establish him as a major figure in mid- and late- 20th-century American letters. This second volume of Robert Duncan's collected poetry and plays presents authoritative annotated texts of both collected and uncollected work from his middle and late writing years (1958-1988), with commentaries on each of the five books from this period: The Opening of the Field, Roots and Branches, Bending the Bow, and the two volumes of Ground Work. The biographical and critical introduction discusses Duncan as a late Romantic and postmodern American writer; his formulation of a homosexual poetics; his development of the serial poem; the notation and centrality of sound as organizing principle; his relations with such fellow poets as Robin Blaser, Charles Olson, and Jack Spicer; his indebtedness to Alfred North Whitehead; and his collaborations with the painter Jess Collins, his lifelong partner. Texts include his anti-war poems of the 1960s and 70s, his homages to Dante and other canonical poets, and his translations from the French of G rard de Nerval, as well as the complete Structure of Rime and Passages series.
