    Review quote
    "Fanshen""The nearest any English contemporary writer has come to emulating Brecht."--"Financial Times""A Map of the World""A brilliant piece of writing: a witty, complex and ultimately uplifting play about the relationship of the West to the Third World.--"Guardian""Saigon: Year of the Cat""An impressive new film which vividly captures the last desperate days in Vietnam as the Reds laid siege to the sweltering city.--"Daily Express""The Bay at Nice""Witty, cerebral and full of fine-spun ironies."--"Guardian""The Secret Rapture""One of the best plays since the war...the finest British dramatist of his generation."--"Sunday Times"
