Contemporary European Playwrights presents and discusses a range of key writers that have radically reshaped European theatre by finding new ways to express the changing nature of the continent’s society and culture, and whose work is still in dialogue with Europe today. Traversing borders and languages, this volume offers a fresh approach to analyzing plays in production by some of the most widely-performed European playwrights, assessing how their work has revealed new meanings and theatrical possibilities as they move across the continent, building an unprecedented picture of the contemporary European repertoire. With chapters by leading scholars and contributions by the writers themselves, the chapters bring playwrights together to examine their work as part of a network and genealogy of writing, examining how these plays embody and interrogate the nature of contemporary Europe. Written for students and scholars of European theatre and playwriting, this book will leave the reader with an understanding of the shifting relationships between the subsidized and commercial, the alternative and the mainstream stage, and political stakes of playmaking in European theatre since 1989.

A diverse selection of contemporary plays from a range of established and up-and-coming playwrights based in France, edited and translated by Chris Campbell, Literary Manager of the Royal Court. ‘The four works in this collection illustrate how contemporary French playwriting cannot be confined to any particular tendencies. Notwithstanding, if one might claim – rather reductively – that UK playwriting tends to focus on social, political or economic issues, then French playwriting tends to foreground form. The wholesale rejection of naturalism begun at the turn of the twentieth century by Alfred Jarry and Roger Vitrac, and taken to its extreme by post-war authors including Beckett and Nathalie Sarraute, led to the explosion of classical theatrical notions like narrative coherence, inear action, psychological characterization and comprehensible dialogue, which were replaced by dissolute poetic fragments. Theatre became a laboratory for research into formal possibility. Contemporary plays in French often push the boundaries of conventional theatrical presentation and production, posing new challenges for directors and actors, who are obliged to revise and renew their dramatic practice in order to stage them. So, too, do these plays pose challenges for translators, and Chris Campbell has succeeded with modest mastery in rendering the music of each of the four authors’ individual voices in his translations.’ Dr Clare Finburgh, University of Kent, from her introduction.

This new series brings together some of the best new writing from contemporary American playwrights. Volume One is introduced by Andre Bishop, Artistic Director of the Lincoln Center Theater, the most prestigious theatre in the USA. Each play is introduced by critically acclaimed writers themselves.The volume includes: KIN by Bathsheba Doran, (with an introduction by Chris Durang) Kin sheds a sharp light on the changing face of kinship in the expansive landscape of the modern world.“Simply terrific. Perhaps the finest new play of the season. Funny and audacious, haunting, and exquisitely wrought.” - Charles Isherwood, New York Times MIDDLETOWN by Will Eno (with an introduction by Gordon Lish) Middletown was awarded the prestigious Horton Foote Prize for Promising New American Play in 2010.“Middletown glimmers from start to finish with tart, funny, gorgeous little comments on big things: the need for love and forgiveness, the search for meaning in life, the long, lonely ache of disappointment.” - Charles Isherwood, New York Times COMPLETENESS by Itamar Moses (with an introduction by Doug Wright) Completeness is a 21st-century romantic comedy about the timeless confusions of love.“A funny, ridiculously smart new play. I haven’t seen another play recently that so perfectly captured love – hot-blooded, fearless, fickle – at this stage in life. I was left with nothing but admiration.” - Jeremy Gerard, Bloomberg News GOD'S EAR by Jenny Schwartz (with an introduction by Edward Albee) “This ode to love, loss and the routines of life has the economy and dry wit of a Sondheim love song ... Schwartz is a real talent and she is trying something ambitious ... In [her] very modern way, [she is] making a rather old-fashioned case for the power of the written word.” - Jason Zinoman, New York Times
