Fagon: Plays 1

Josephine House / The Death of a Black Man / Lonely Cowboy

Alfred Fagon
Jamaican-born Fagon came to England at the age of 18, working first on the railways, and then enlisting in the army, where he became a boxing champion. He soon became a leading figure in black theatre.

His characters struggle to live in a hostile British culture as exiles from their spiritual home, with explosive consequences. This collection spans the whole of Fagon’s short but remarkable writing career.

Fagon’s writing is sharp, funny, unpretentious...(his) view of the black predicament is complex, thoughtful and compassionate. - Andrew Rissick,  Time Out
