Mark Ravenhill: Plays 1
by Mark Ravenhill
Methuen Drama | £10.00 | RRP £14.99
Includes: Shopping and F***ing, Faust is Dead, Handbag, Some Explicit Polaroids
Out of Joint’s famous world premiere production of Shopping and F***ing heralded a thrilling new theatrical voice in Mark Ravenhill. Its immediate success and acclaim (and, of course, its title) made it a bold addition to the West End. Shopping and F***ing and Ravenhill’s other play for Out of Joint, Some Explicit Polaroids, are both wholly original, cool and compassionate pieces about human connections in a fragmented and commercialised world.
This must-have volume also contains Faust is Dead (“an intelligent and witty re-appropriation of the legend… alive, pertinent and disturbing” -Observer) and Handbag, with its nod to The Importance of Being Earnest (“Combines urban grit with sly wit, and reveals Mark Ravenhill as a writer of real daring” -Daily Telegraph)
