Edward Bond is considered one of Britain's most important and innovative playwrights today. In this book, Jenny Spencer presents an in-depth examination of Bond's work and sheds new light on the state of contemporary British drama. Rather than a chronological discussion, Spencer evaluates the plays through the dramatic strategies and techniques which are key elements in Bond's theatre. In a fascinating analysis of the plays as well as previously unpublished material, and in discussion with the playwright himself, Spencer provides insights into Edward Bond and his style of theatre.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Jenny Spencer has written a dynamic, original and knowledgeable study. She probes Bond's plays deeply and is responsive to contemporary trends in drama criticism.' Ruby Cohn
'Bond is arguably one of the most important dramatists writing in England over four decades ... Professor Spencer appreciates Bond in the full sense of that verb: she consistently views him in his historical context (not only political but theatrical), and she understands his socialist project for the stage ... Surveying plays from the Bond canon against this fully defined background, from the Bond canon against this fully defined background. Professor Spencer's book is a seminal work on contemporary theatre.' Jill Levenson
"...the most successful thematic and stylistic 'close reading' of Bond's major plays, from The Pope's Wedding through The War Plays....Dramatic Strategies in the Plays of Edward Bond is required reading for anyone interested in Bond's plays...." W. B. Worthen, Contemporary Literature
