Franco's Bastard / Lola Brecht
Page extent: 96
Franco's Bastard looks at nationalism and terrorism, whilst Lola Brecht explores the situation in the Balkans.
The plays deal with their subjects often with a humour that tests audiences and questions what we regard as the truth. They are based on the author's belief that theatre is not simply a place of entertainment but a vital and radical forum for the debating of issues necessary to the health of democracy.
