Edward Kemp
 
It's 1605 and the war on terror is going badly. A group of young religious fanatics has recruited a mercenary, Guy Fawkes, to strike at the heart of the English Government. But in a police state no-one can be trusted and their plot is going to be turned against the very people it was meant to save. This incendiary thriller weaves together the lives of kings and terrorists, priests and spies in a play of epic proportions, which has the sweep and scope of the very best historical drama.

Review
a big, bold, joltingly topical new play... explosive epic with echoes for today -  Daily Telegraph

Nathan the Wise

Gotthold Lessing, transl. Edward Kemp
 

Edward Kemp’s acclaimed version of Lessing’s 18th-century masterpiece, a passionate plea for religious tolerance.

Jerusalem, 1192. An uneasy stalemate exists between the Muslim forces of Saladin and the western Crusaders. Caught in the middle are the Jews. All sides respect Nathan for his wisdom and his wealth. But in a war-zone, no one is secure.

Review
'This is a play whose time has come again... brilliantly lucid translation... eminently worth seeing... a seminal piece of world drama written in 1779 and banned by the Nazis in 1933, its theme speaks urgently and forcefully to us today.'  Guardian
