Mike Leigh

Published by Faber & Faber

1 Male 4 Female

Concentrating on a North-London Jewish family, Mike Leigh explores, in a gentle tragic-comic way, a wide range of issues, including politics, religion, identity and the vexed question of Israel and the Middle East

"This is not simply a play about families. Leigh is also writing about the crisis of loss of faith: about a world in which people have increasingly lost their beliefs in politics, religion and social progress. This is a passionate, funny, moving and well-observed play" ~ Michael Billington, The Guardian
