    Along with Samuel Beckett and Eugène Ionesco, Harold Pinter holds an undisputed place in the front ranks of contemporary dramatists. In volume two of his collected works, the plays and revue sketches mark a period of transition, as Pinter’s characters and settings become more recognizably realistic, in contrast to the absurdist atmosphere of his earlier work. The Caretaker, which first brought him fame on both sides of the Atlantic, was called “a play of strangely compelling beauty and passion” by Howard Taubman of The New York Times. An essay by Pinter, “Writing for Myself,” introduces this collection.Includes:The CaretakerThe DwarfsThe CollectionThe LoverNight SchoolTrouble in the WorksThe Black and WhiteRequest StopLast to GoSpecial Offer“Writing for Myself”

    Inside a beautiful state residence on the edge of an Eastern European city, four women wait. They talk – movies, handbags, vodka, anything. For outside, as snow is falling, civil war looms ever nearer. A play about decadence, desire and dictatorship, Splendour brilliantly peels back the cruel veneer of our lives to reveal the beating heart within. 
    
     
    Tender takes place in a city full of chance encounters. Al loves Hen, but now there’s a baby on the way everything looks different. Gloria loves Marvin, but one day he walked out and disappeared. And Hen’s mate Tash just loves a laugh and a drink. Particularly a drink. In this world of fast talk and hard sell, how much faith can we put in other people? 
    
     
    Splendour was first produced by Paines Plough and won the Barclays TMA Award for Best New Play. Tender was first produced by Birmingham Rep, in a co-production with Hampstead Theatre and Theatre Royal Plymouth.

    A thrilling play about the race to be the first woman in space.  
    Renee Coburg is a gritty, glamorous aviator, the fastest, highest, bravest woman in the world. Jo Green is a determined, brilliant and much younger pilot with her eye on all Renee's records. They both want to be the first woman in space but there's only one chair at the top of the rocket.  
    The Astronaut's Chair is Rona Munro’s second ‘space’ play following Little Eagles, which is about the space race in Russia.  
    'a beautifully written and sensitively executed docudrama' - Whatsonstage.com  
    'the play shows the impact global politics and the whims of leaders can have on individual lives. It doesn't shirk from examining how personal rivalries are exacerbated when women have to compete for a single chair at a table where every other seat is occupied by men' - The Guardian  
    'the dialogue is so elegant, so perfectly crafted and authentic... it's rare to see female power dynamics handled as subtly as they are here' - Exeunt Magazine
