Includes his widely acclaimed plays, Digging for Fire "Savagely comic account of a disastrous, booze-fuelled college reunion" (Daily Telegraph), New Morning "This is one of those rare plays that really does have you on the edge of your seat, frantic to know what is going to happen next" (Daily Telegraph), Halloween Night "Declan Hughes's compelling darkly funny reunion drama...has supernatural overtones but a very human message" (Evening Standard); Love in a Bottle (after George Farquhar) "Hughes's dialogue drips with sexual juices...a raunchy treat" (Time Out).
