Vicky Angelaki leads this exploration of Martin Crimp’s plays, with contributions from Oliver Mears, Chris Campbell and an interview with Martin Crimp.
Martin Crimp began writing for theatre in the 1980s, and his 1997 play, Attempts on Her Life, established his international reputation. The plays that followed, The Country, The City, Cruel and Tender, and In the Republic of Happiness, have been seen by audiences across the world. He has also written the text for two highly-acclaimed operas, Written on Skin, and Lessons in Love and Violence. To coincide with this production, two plays commissioned by Hamburg's Schauspielhaus, The rest will be familiar to you from cinema and Men asleep, both originally directed by Katie Mitchell, will be published for the first time in the UK by Faber and Faber.
Vicky Angelaki is Associate Professor of Theatre at the University of Reading. Her books include The Plays of Martin Crimp: Making Theatre Strange and Social and Political Theatre in 21st-Century Britain: Staging Crisis.
