With an Introduction by Michael Hastings.
No other major British playwright of the last 50 years has undergone such a radical reappraisal as Rodney Ackland. Interest in his work renewed in the 1990s, starting at the Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond, with further revivals at many theatres, including the Chichester Festival Theatre and the Royal National Theatre. In Plays Two, we are reminded once again of Ackland's unique and dangerous gift.
