The Methuen Book of Modern Drama: Plays of the '80s and '90s

Published to celebrate twenty years of Methuen's Royal Court Writers Series, this volume contains five ground-breaking plays of the eighties and nineties.

Top Girls: "Builds to a superb, emotion-draining climax that sent me out of the theatre convinced that this is the best British play ever from a woman dramatist." — Guardian

Hysteria: "One of the most brilliantly original and entertaining new plays I have seen in years." — Sunday Times

Blasted: "Kane has an acute grasp of sexual politics, and her dialogue is both sparse and stunning. They will call her mad, but, then, they said that about Strindberg." — Mail on Sunday

Shopping and F***ing: "A real coup de theatre ... a blackly humorous play for today's twenty-somethings." — Evening Standard

The Beauty Queen of Leenane: "The most wickedly funny, brilliantly abrasive young dramatist on either side of the Irish Sea ... a born storyteller." — The New York Times
