David Williamson
 

Williamson’s famous play about the uses and abuses of managerial power, which in 1976 foreshadowed the great changes that Australian football has since endured, proves even more prescient since the rise and fall of Super League. This is a play set behind the scenes, a head-on tackle of brawn versus bureaucracy.

Richard Bean
 
Hapless MEP Philip Wardrobe has a busy day ahead of him, balancing his less than irreproachable political career with his attempts to start a family. As he prepares for his girlfriend to fly in from Kettering for an afternoon of fertile frolics, his plan to be voted President of the European Parliament is foiled at every turn by unpredictable colleagues: uncouth Yorkshiremen, irate Turks and amorous Frenchwomen… to say nothing of the mysterious man in the linen cupboard.

Door-slamming shenanigans ensue as Philip’s political and personal life collide in a Strasbourg hotel suite, with hilarious results.

The Suspect Culture Club

Graham Eatough and Dan Rebellato (eds)
 
Suspect Culture was Scotland’s leading experimental theatre company between 1993 and 2009. Based in Glasgow, it was formed of a core group of associate artists who collaborated in making groundbreaking, high quality new work which gained an international reputation.  

Over the course of its 16-year history the company worked with some of the most respected artists and organizations in the UK and internationally, and is seen to have made a significant contribution to the British theatre scene of the 1990s and early 2000s. Described by the Scotsman on Sunday as ‘ Scottish theatre’s major creative powerhouse’ and by The Times as ‘ the most adventurous, most in-tune-with-the-times theatre company in Britain’, Suspect Culture have had a quietly decisive impact on British theatre.

The Supsect Culture Club Book offers a comprehensive survey of the company’s history and ideas and features contributions from its most important artists and critics. Edited by Artistic Director Graham Eatough and playwright/academic Dan Reballato and lavishly illustrated throughout, the book offers multpile international persepctives on Suspect Culture alongside previously unpublished playtexts of three of its most celebrated shows, Timeless, Mainstream and Lament (all created by the company with text by David Greig).

Williamson Collected Plays Volume 2

The Department / A Handful of Friends / The Club / Travelling North

David Williamson
 

This volume shows a consolidation and maturing of Williamson's style. Although he retains his satirical edge, there is a marked move from the domestic and personal dilemmas explored in the earlier plays to a focus on the public domain. Private desires and public issues are subtly compared and contrasted.

The Department
A staff meeting of the Engineering Department in a College of Advanced Education is the occasion in this play for an acute dissection of the workings of bureaucracy and the absurd politicking needed to support it.

A Handful of Friends
