Franco’s Bastard / Lola Brecht  

Franco’s Bastard / Lola Brecht $20.86 ex GST
$22.95 inc GST
Two plays for a post-modern Europe in which language is used not to communicate but to excommunicate.

Franco's Bastard 
Looks at nationalism and terrorism within a small European country searching for identity. 
Lola Brecht
Set in an imaginary enclave engulfed by war in the heartland of Europe's turbulent present.

Both plays deal with their subjects with a humour that tests audiences, and on Edwards' belief that theatre is a vital and radical forum for the debating of issues necessary to the health of democracy.

Cast : Franco's Bastard - 2M, 2F / Lola Brecht - 3M, 1F

DIC EDWARDS has worked on over 20 productions. His work has won critical praise and popular acclaim, but has also garnered controversy: In 2002, Welsh Nationalists took to the stage and conducted walk outs during the run of his play Franco’s Bastard at Wales' Chapter Arts Centre. Edwards was born in Cardiff, where his first play was produced in 1982. At the End of the Bay appeared at a time when new theatre in the English language in Wales was almost non-existent. Since then his work has been produced across the UK, including the Royal Court Theatre and The Citizens' Theatre in Glasgow.
