Summary

Many of the poems included here are short and uplifting, with messages such as “be yourself,” “you are beautiful,” and “this too shall pass.” They combine the appeal of short, shareable poems with inspiration and encouragement. Also included are some of White’s lengthier prose pieces, which address his childhood, his relationship with his father, and past romantic relationships, among other things. Whatever the form, White takes inspiration from the everyday, writing about abstract topics like love, loss, depression, and resilience using concrete, relatable details and scenes.

    Nina Raine's Tiger Country is a hospital play that follows a tangle of doctors and nurses in a busy London hospital - from the award-winning author of Tribes.  
    Professionalism and prejudice, turbulent staff romances, ambition and failure collide in this swirling, action-packed drama about an overburdened health service that we all depend on and the dedicated individuals that keep it going.  
    'Tiger country' is where animal instinct stirs and an irrefutable eye opens. Where we make eye contact with the unknown.  
    Tiger Country was premiered at Hampstead Theatre in 2011 and, following its sell-out run, was revived there in 2014.
