By the author of "Saved", "Lear", "The Woman", "Bingo", "Jackets" and "In the Company of Men", this play portrays the violence inherent in the prison system and in police practice as a savage mirror image of the violence of a domestic killer.
This volume includes the TV version and the stage adaptation "When you marry, have kids...you'll still be in that chair." An ordinary city flat. Evening. A man tries to talk to his daughter. She will not answer. The play moves through the prison of the mind, to that of the outside world in a search that leads to a tragedy.Edward Bond is "a great playwright - many, particularly in continental Europe, would say the greatest living English playwright" (Independent)
