Includes the plays An Audience Called Edouard, Livingstone and Sechele, Motocar and Richard III Part Two David Pownall is one of Britain's leading playwrights. This collection brings together four of his most popular stage plays. In An Audience Called Edouard Karl Marx is brought to life from Manet's famous painting Dejeuner sur l'Herbe whilst at the same time being hunted by the police. Livingstone and Sechele tells the story of Dr Livingstone, a missionary, who only made one convert: a young African chief living in the Kalahari Desert. Motocar is an intriguing story set in the linen room of a mental hospital for blacks, two weeks before Independence, while Richard III Part Two ingeniously examines the uses and abuses of history.
