Tim Crouch: Plays One

Tim Crouch

PaperBack (10 Nov 2011)
£16.99

"The four Tim Crouch plays contained in this volume make up one of the most important bodies of English-language playwriting to have emerged so far in the twenty-first century. Of course, we’re less than a dozen years into it, so the statement is still a little on the cautious side, but I can think of no other contemporary playwright who has asked such a compelling set of questions about theatrical form, narrative content, and spectatorial engagement." - Stephen Bottoms, University of Leeds

Includes the plays The Author, England, An Oak Tree and My Arm. 

My Arm

‘...he is actually exploring on stage the nature of art and performance itself, taking risks in the process… At these moments, Crouch is armed and dangerous.’ Guardian

An Oak Tree

‘Pirandello for a modern audience and better. It’s philosophy inaction, playful and seriously thought-provoking.’ Independent on Sunday

ENGLAND

‘…created with rigorous, poetic economy… ENGLAND belongs to that wonderful genre of thoughtful plays that could be discussed for hours without exhausting its ideas.’ New York Times

The Author

‘This is not audience participation; it is the audience at once being the theatre and interrogating it.’ Financial Times

Reviews



'The book is an ideal gift for Tim Crouch fans, for students looking for meaty modern texts to work on or for newcomers to Crouch wanting to explore his interesting work. I bet it won’t be long before I see and hear some of it in drama school student showcases' The Stage

‘Crouch is one of the most talked about of our contemporary playwrights… Expect to have strong reactions to his textual inferences and imagined spectatorial engagement.’ Word Matters

‘The four Tim Crouch plays contained in this volume make up one of the most important bodies of English language playwriting to have emerged so far in the twenty-first century.’ Stephen Bottoms, University of Leeds
