Gearing: Plays

Nigel Gearing

PaperBack (31 Jul 2001)

Includes the plays Janis in the Chelsea, Elgar's Tenth Muse and Meeting Mr Wilde

Is public adulation always accompanied by private disappointment? Is creative fulfilment necessarily at odds with personal happiness? What is the price of fame? In these three biographical scenarios - about Janis Joplin, Edward Elgar and Oscar Wilde repectively - Nigel Gearing explores the often droll disparity between the satisfying structures we call Art and the infinitely more messy ‘rag-and-bone shop of the heart.’
