Review quote

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