The third in David Edgar’s post-Cold War trilogy—an urgently topical account of a bloody conflict on Europe’s Eastern borders.

Review
'The greatest virtue of David Edgar’s enthralling new play is that it confronts the kind of intractable ethnic conflict that has blown up in the wake of the Soviet Union’s demise.... Edgar’s erudition and appetite for major subject-matter have paid off.'  Daily Telegraph

Author

DAVID EDGAR is one of Britain's leading playwrights. He calls himself ' a writer of public life', and once remarked that he wanted to be 'a secretary for the times through which I'm living'. His many plays include Nicholas Nickleby for the RSC (adaptation), Destiny, Maydays, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Pentecost, The Prisoner’s Dilemma, The Shape of the Table, Entertaining Strangers (with Judi Dench), Albert Speer and, most recently, Playing with Fire.  His bestselling book How Plays Work was published by NHB in 2009. He also writes for radio, television, and film and is a frequent commentator on political and theatre issues, as both essayist and public speaker. He founded the Theatre Writer's Union, as well as Britain's first graduate playwriting course at Birmingham.
