    "Glyn Maxwell's plays staged in the UK and the USA include The Lifeblood, which was British Theatre Guide's 'Best Play on the Fringe' at Edinburgh in 2004, Broken Journey and The Only Girl in the World (both Time Out Critics' Choices). Merlin and the Woods of Time was staged in the 2011 summer season at Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre, and Liberty was staged at Shakespeare's Globe in 2008. His poetry has won several major prizes and his selected poems, One Thousand Nights and Counting, was published last year by Picador. Oberon Books publishes his Plays One (The Lifeblood, Wolfpit and The Only Girl in the World), Plays Two (Broken Journey, Best Man Speech and The Last Valentine), The Forever Waltz, Liberty, Merlin and the Woods of Time, Masters Are You Mad?, and the libretti The Lion's Face and Seven Angels. Oberon Books also publishes On Poetry, a collection of short essays and reflections on poetry."
    Review quote
    "Glyn Maxwell's drama does not so much conflate the two great tragedies of loss and revenge ["Women of Troy" and "Hecuba" but rather alights, magpie-like, on what is shiny in each to create a brand new play" -Lyn Gardner, "Guardian"
