Plays Two, Volume 2
All the plays in this second volume of Paul Sirett's collected plays focus on dislocation and the clash of the civilisations.
Set in an airport immigration office, Worlds Apart interweaves the fates of five detainees and the officers handling them, with the Tibetan folk tale of Sukyi Nyima. In Crusade, a group of Western tourists break down in the West Bank, reacting in different and surprising ways to their situation. This Other Eden portrays the disasterous personal and political divisions within a classical string quartet. The collection ends with the short play International Cafe which brings together the stories of a restaurant's staff and customers, and was specifically written to be performed in restaurants.
