The latest collection of David Storey's plays; including the newly revised and revived The Changing Room. Introduced by the author This third volume of David Storey's plays contains The Changing Room (Royal Court 1971): "If The Changing Room is Storey's most powerful drama, it is because he has found in sport his purest metaphor for the war of existence" (Time Magazine); Cromwell (Royal Court 1973): "An exploration of the vices and virtues of the English Puritan instinct using the historical associations of the Cromwellian period. On top of that it is also an impressive piece of poetic drama employing a spare, flinty, concrete language that seems to be hewn out of rock...a rich and complex play" (Guardian); Life Class: "a portrait of a man, dangerous, controlled, and wounded, who brings down his whole career in one enormous gesture signifying that all we hold of good from the past is now incapable of renewal and irrelevant to our present needs...Life Class is not merely a very good play. It is a blazing masterpiece...It is a tremendous experience and its glare lights up the sky." (Sunday Times)"David Storey is a writer who genuinely extends the territory of drama" (Guardian)
