'The four Tim Crouch plays contained in this volume make up one of the most important bodies of English-language playwriting to have emerged so far in the twenty-first century. Of course, we're less than a dozen years into it, so the statement is still a little on the cautious side, but I can think of no other contemporary playwright who has asked such a compelling set of questions about theatrical form, narrative content, and spectatorial engagement.' - Stephen Bottoms, University of Leeds
Includes the plays The Author, England,An Oak Tree and My Arm.
'...he is actually exploring on stage the nature of art and performance itself, taking risks in the process... At these moments, Crouch is armed and dangerous.' - Guardian
An Oak Tree
'Pirandello for a modern audience and better. It's philosophy in action, playful and seriously thought-provoking.' - Independent on Sunday
'...created with rigorous, poetic economy... ENGLAND belongs to that wonderful genre of thoughtful plays that could be discussed for hours without exhausting its ideas.' - New York Times
'This is not audience participation; it is the audience at once being the theatre and interrogating it.' - Financial Times
