More Description

"Bond Plays: Six" includes some of the most acclaimed work of Edward Bond, one of Britain's greatest living contemporary dramatists, who is widely studied by schools and colleges. The collection includes a commentary by the author.

In "The War Plays" ("Red Black and Ignorant," "The Tin Can People," "Great Peace"): "Bond particularizes daunting themes and subjects but examines them within the context of everyday life. His platform is a trilogy of plays that deal with the aftermath of a nuclear holocaust. The first--a quick, telling chronicle of a life destroyed before it ever got lived--puts forth Bond's notions of contemporary cultural corruption and conditioning. In play two, the demoralized inheritors of a ravaged earth try to rationalize an existence predicated on death. The third play enlarges the issues by focusing on a post-apocalyptic Mother Courage for whom schizoid suffering becomes a survival technique."--"Time Out"

In "Choruses From After The Assassinations," Bond forecasts questions fifty years into the future in an age of escalating militarism.
