Includes the plays Flowering Cherry, The Tiger and the Horse and Gentle Jack
We are delighted to be publishing six plays by one of England’s truly great post-war dramatists. Flowering Cherry (1957) depicts the detachment of the dreamer who cannot relate to ordinary office life, while The Tiger and the Horse (1960), a far more intellectual exercise, hinges on whether the wife of an academic should sign a ‘ban the bomb’ petition and thus jeopardise her husband’s career. Bolt shows another side to his considerable talents with the pantheistic parable Gentle Jack (1963).
