Published by Methuen

This great-value Anthology offers five outstanding plays from the British theatre of the 1960s

They're all major works by five of the most important playwrights to emerge during the late fifties and early sixties

Bold, challenging and iconoclastic, these plays are landmarks of post-war British theatre ...

Roots ~ Arnold Wesker

Focuses on the homecoming of young Beatie Bryant who returns to her family of Norfolk farm workers with stories of her boyfriend Ronnie

Serjeant Musgrave's Dance ~ John Arden

Set in a mining town in the 19th century where a group of soldiers returned from a colonial war. But when Musgrave is asked to keep the peace with the colliery workers, he decides to do so in a rather unusual way

Loot ~ Joe Orton

A brilliant parody of the skeleton-in-the-cupboard crime genre, exploding the very notions of English decency, good citizenry and traditional attitudes

Early Morning ~ Edward Bond

This re-imagines the time of Victoria and Albert caught up in a military coup plotted by Disraeli

Ruling Class ~ Peter Barnes

Describes the fall-out in an aristocratic family after the 14th Earl commits suicide and leaves his estate to a schizophrenic Franciscan friar who is under the illusion that he is Jesus
