The crime of the twenty-first century

Front Cover
Methuen Drama, 1999 - Drama - 58 pages

The twenty-first century. The past has been abolished and geography—even the sky—is changed. A woman lives in a vast desert of white rubble. A tiny group of people come to her seeking a hiding place but, instead, are exposed to the deepest questions of human drama, the questions of classical theatre itself. Elemental, stark, and with a ruthless logic, Bond's new play takes both mind and body to the very edge of experience.

Edward Bond is "a great playwright—many, particularly in continental Europe, would say the greatest living English playwright."—Independent

"A play by one of Britain's greatest playwrights is an event."—Times Educational Supplement
