Babou Ceesay and Andrew Garfield in The Overwhelming

We’re having a bit of a clear-out! So snap up these three collections of enthralling plays which we’ve put together at discount prices. Great presents, whether for you or someone else.


AFRICAN ADVENTURES

2 books | £6 including UK p&p

Two richly imagined thrillers full of humour and strong characters.

Bang Bang Bang
by Stella Feehily
Two young women – human rights observers – head to the Democratic Republic of Congo to seek out a dangerous and charismatic young warlord. They’re part of  a community of aid workers, medics, journalists, advisers and photographers who keep coming back for one last mission; for whom life back home is too small compared with the danger – and debauchery – of life without borders. “Wonderful writing. Stella Feehily’s best work to date” Whatsonstage.com

The Overwhelming
by JT Rogers
Jack Exley uproots his family from Illinois to Rwanda, in order to research a book and seek out an old friend. But his wife and teenage son soon get into trouble, in a country where tensions are about to spill over into horror. “Devastating power” Sunday Times

WOMEN AT WORK

3 books | £9.50 including UK p&p

Ciphers
by Dawn King
When Justine is found dead, her sister Kerry suspects foul play. Her investigations unearth revelations about the seemingly quiet and unassuming Justine – her work in the secret services, and her affair with a married artist. Are the two things linked? “An ingenious thriller about spies, surveillance and doubleness” The Guardian

London Wall
by John Van Druten
Wryly funny, moving and startlingly modern, this 1931 play set in a solicitors’ office in the City enjoyed much praised revival a couple of years ago. It teems with gossip, romance, competition and ambition – and in its shrewdly observed office and gender politics, it feels like a forerunner to Mad Men“Both dramatically engaging and a fascinating theatrical time-capsule” Daily Telegraph

Jane Wenham...

Jane Wenham…

OUR HISTORY

3 books | £9.50 including UK p&p

Jane Wenham: The Witch of Walkern
by Rebecca Lenkiewicz
Inspired by events in a Hertfordshire village, this haunting, gripping play examines sex, religion, nature and superstition through the story of a local “cunning woman” accused of witchcraft by a zealous but inexperienced young priest.  “A heady brew of sex and sorcery” The Guardian

Pitcairn
by Richard Bean
Like an adult Lord of the Flies, Richard Bean’s ambitious and funny play tells what happened after the mutiny on The Bounty. Fletcher Christian and his followers hide out on a remote island, and dream of building a perfect society without hierarchy. It goes brutally, horrifically awry. “A rip-roaring tale, rich in metaphorical resonance” Daily Telegraph

A Dish of Tea with Dr Johnson
by Russell Barr, Ian Redford & Max Stafford-Clark
A glorious, humane celebration of Samuel “dictionary” Johnson, his work and his words. A man whose impatience matched his wit; whose kindness belied his own ill health; and whose phenomenal intelligence did not make him any less vulnerable to the pains of unrequited love. A treat, this. “Every line chimes” The Times
