Mike Bartlett

Published by Nick Hern Books

2 Male 0 Female

A play about friendship and alcoholism from one of the UK's most original and distinctive dramatic voices

Mike Bartlett's previous plays include Bull, Cock, Love, Love, Love and Charles III and have enjoyed huge critical and commercial success

With An Intervention he returns to the small-scale work that made his name, creating a touching, funny play about what happens when you come to hate your best friend ...

One of them went on the anti-war protest

Shouted their lungs out

Then got horrendously and staggeringly drunk

The other stayed at home

Watched TV for a bit

And thought about the future

A painful, funny and insightful masterpiece in miniature


' ... incisive, intimate, closely focused has Bartlett's astute wit and extraordinary ability to pinpoint the way maturity can suddenly slip away' ~ Financial Times

' ... superb intensely dramatic' ~ WhatsOnStage

' ... nimble and elegant [a] smart two-hander' ~ The Stage
