Overview

An essential anthology of five plays originally staged by what the New York Times described as "the most important theater in Europe"--The Royal Court.

Enron is an epic satire about the notorius rise and fall of Enron and its founding partners, written by Lucy Prebble. The play premiered in London.

Under the Blue Sky by David Eldridge is a touching and comic play about love, war and teaching. First produced in 2000 it was successfully revived on the West End a decade later and has become a turn-of-the-century classic.
Roy Williams' play Fallout was written in response to the killing of Damilola Taylor and the McPherson report into racism in the Metropolitan Police. Exhilarating and shattering, it is an essential play exploring how black teenagers are drawn into violence and mutual mistrust.

Challenging and uncomfortable, Motortown is about the 'war on terror' and the war in Iraq. Described as "an instant modern classic, the first major anti-anti-war play of this era" (What's on Stage) Simon Stephens' play examines the effects of the war on individuals and a nation lacking a moral compass.

Mike Bartlett emerged as one of the most exciting young writers of recent times when his play My Child premiered in 2007. A play about fatherhood, broken families and what it means to be a good parent, it was heaped with praise: "Brutal, thrilling... unmissable"--Evening Standard
