Theatre Café Plays Two (Oberon Modern Playwrights) (Paperback)
Includes the plays: Sense, Nightblind and Blowing.Following on from the success of the first collection of Theatre Caf plays in 2008, this new collection includes 3 plays from this astonishing European theatre project. From award winning writer Anja Hilling, Sense is a play about teenagers, love, and the need to make radical choices. An intense, poetic journey into touching, inhaling, tasting, hearing, seeing and experiencing life to the extreme, five stories about five senses. While each story links to the next part, all five 'Senses' are also plays in their own right. In Nightblind Leyla's life is on the verge of collapse. Caught between affection and violence, desire and self-destruction, she is faced with the decision of her life. Elegantly constructed, Darja Stocker's extraordinary debut play tells of liberation and endurance - as well as the necessity of dreaming. Nightblind won First Prize at the Heidelberger St ckemarkt 2005. From Jeroen van den Berg, Blowing is an explosive farce, upgraded for the YouTube generation. Winner of the prestigious Dutch Taalunie Award for Best Play, Blowing tells the story of a family imploding under the weight of its own fantasy. Blowing is a searingly funny critique of family pretensions and adult condescension to children.
