Summary

Two plays from the acclaimed playwright debbie tucker green.
trade is a short play dealing with the controversial topic of female sex tourism.
Three black women on a Caribbean island: a hip young thing from London, an older tourist and a resident native. One subject. Two worlds. Three points of view.
trade was first performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company as part of the 2005 New Work Festival in the Swan Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon, in October 2005. (An earlier version of the play was performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company as part of the 2004 New Work Festival at The Other Place, Stratford-upon-Avon, in October 2004, and Soho Theatre, London, in March 2005).
generations is a 30-minute drama about three generations of a black South African family who contest their relative culinary skills. But food isn't the only topic and the family numbers are declining...
generations was first seen as a Platform performance at the National Theatre, London, on 30 June 2005. The play was revived at the Young Vic, London, in March 2007, in a production directed by Sacha Wares.
'Poetry laced with shards of broken glass... short, sharp and pungent theatre' - Guardian on trade
'Packs more into its single intense act than most plays twice its duration manage... shocking emotional violence... a riveting examination of the queasy relationship between two parts of our economically divided world. A small wonder' - The Times on trade
'An entire continent made personal in debbie tucker green's devastating play... runs for fewer than 30 minutes, but will last you a lifetime' - Guardian on generations

    This remarkable collection of poetry by two friends whose work is in some way similar, but also refreshingly different, focuses on ten primary themes that engagingly highlight and make eternally memorable, experiences that are common to many people, but rarely as well written as this. The phrase, ‘True wit is Nature to advantage dress’d / What oft was thought but ne'er so well express’d’, applies very poignantly to this collection.
    
    René and Chris served in the Intelligence Corps and met in a now redundant army camp in 1965. Their friendship has endured for more than fifty-six years, sustained even over the thirty-five years when Chris lived in Australia and René travelled the world. They collaborated on this book to select poems that depict their lives. The poems stir the emotions of, for example, adventure, love, family and nation. They can provoke, they often amuse. René and Chris hope you enjoy them.

    This anthology comprises five of the best plays from VAULT 2018, London's biggest and most exciting arts festival.
    Young men are dying and everyone assumes they're just casualties of London's chemsex scene. Everyone, that is, but Anthony, who is determined to investigate. Tumulus by Christopher Adams is a chilling, queer play-noir set amongst the shadowy hills of Hampstead Heath.
    Critically acclaimed during its run at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Lucy Burke's Glitter Punch – set in Greater Manchester – charts a troubling new relationship between mysterious John and sixteen-year-old Molly, a love that will change their lives forever. 'Powerful' (The Stage).
    Set in a Wigan taxi, Burkas and Bacon Butties by Shamia Chalabi and Sarah Henley is a heart-warming comedy about taxi-driver Ashraf and his twenty-something daughter, Shaz, as they negotiate the ups and downs of living in a mixed-culture family.
    When bereaved mother Mary finds a disembodied arm, a conspiracy builds: maybe her child isn't quite so dead after all. Shortlisted for Soho Theatre's Tony Craze Award, Sami Ibrahim's Wind Bit Bitter, Bit Bit Bit Her is an enthralling monologue about love and loss.
    The Strongbox by Stephanie Jacob is a story of domestic servitude and abuse of power, as authoritarian Kat, her ageing mother, Ma, and their teenaged slave, Maudie, jostle for power – and affection – in their dilapidated London home.

    For much of history women have been seen rather than heard. Their thoughts, their views have lain too long in the shadows of our culture.  Whilst this traditional view has some merit it is not entirely accurate. 
    Here, gathered together in these volumes, we can, through their words, experience their lives; we can hear their voices, their thoughts, joys, loves and losses. 
    For the Female Poet there was always the confining hand of men to instruct that their time was perhaps spent more productively elsewhere.  These lines, these gilded verses often protest otherwise. 
    The contribution of women in these earlier centuries is immense and in this series we bring together poets who have created some of the most beautiful and expressive verses ever written.  And remember these words, these telling lines, have been written against the grain of society's male bias.  With their remembered words these female poets have given us a history that we can all now share. 
    This volume comes to you from Portable Poetry, a specialized imprint from Deadtree Publishing.  Our range is large and growing and covers single poets, themes, and many compilations.
