Summary

Award-winning playwright Jonathan Moore has been described as a “singular voice for his generation: furious, nihilistic, poetic…” (Time Out). This anthology brings together three of his critically acclaimed plays, including: This Other Eden, Fall From Light, and Treatment.


 


The Plays


This Other Eden (Guardian Critics’s Choice): A story of passion. A wife and a mother. Her son and daughter. Her husband. The London Irish. Limboland. The hunger for a sense of a real culture. The desire for freedom… A tough play about a woman’s soul, told with beauty, humour and hope.


“… the play burns with passion and indignation.” Daily Telegraph


Fall From Light: A young composer writes a new opera. The Director rejects it, but his lover, a young Diva, takes him to the council estate, where she and the composer grew up. There they meet Girly and his gang… A tale of art, savagery and redemption.


Treatment (Fringe First): Liam is part of a violent street gang but wants to escape. Trapped between two worlds, he has to choose between the dark allure of violence and the healing power of love.
