A remarkable writer - an original fresh voice, with a sharp political edge
(Vicky Featherstone, Artistic Director the Royal Court Theatre).
British writer Rory Mullarkey is the winner of the Harold Pinter Commission, the James Tait Black Prize for Drama and the George Devine Award for most promising playwright. His original work has been staged at the Royal Court Theatre, the National Theatre, Manchester Royal Exchange and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre.
His first play collection brings together three previously published plays with two unpublished works. A writer of "considerable talent" (Telegraph), this is a powerful and diverse collection from an established contemporary voice.
Single Sex: "a truly disturbing and twisted tale of obsession" (Culture Bean)
Tourism: A compelling and humorous take on modern cultural identities.
Cannibals: "Brilliantly exciting drama" (Independent)
Wolf From the Door: "Fervent and bracingly original...laced with exuberant absurdity and moments of twisted humour..." (Evening Standard)
Each Slow Dusk: `A great war play, original and richly reflective in form . . . [It] encapsulates the British soldier's experience in under an hour . . . Remarkable.' ReviewsGate
