Retired bank manager George Pearmain is, apparently, dead. According to the behaviour of everyone around him, it would seem that he is no more. Not only that, but his mother has also passed away too - and on the eve of her 99th year, poor dear. Not only that, it could be that they were both murdered. He feels fine otherwise. As George's family gather for the birthday-celebration-that-never-was, he hovers around the house, watching and listening, entirely unseen. As a result, he makes all sorts of discoveries about himself, his wife Esmeralda and his supposedly happy family . . . Screamingly funny and strange, it asks the question: What if you could bear witness to your own demise?

Henry Farr is forty years old. He is suburban, average, conventional - and desperate to be rid of his wife, Elinor. Inspired by a grisly episode in Wimbledon's local history, Farr begins to concoct a recipe for the perfect murder.

Robert Wilson is an aimless, chronically untruthful young Englishman who has passed himself off as a Muslim, in order to secure a job at the newly established Wimbledon Independent Islamic Boys' Day School. East of Wimbledon is the hilarious story of Mr Wilson's decline and fall, as he demonstrates the failure of a post-colonial Briton to understand another great imperial culture that has absolutely no need of him.

Author: Nigel Williams Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 19/02/1996

Playwright and novelist Nigel Williams's stage adaptation of William Golding's story was first professionally produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company at Stratford-upon-Avon in July 1995. 'Remarkably true to the novel in spirit . . . the theatre lends itself particularly well to the ritualistic aspects of the story - chanting, dancing, marching, forming a circle round the victim, stamping out a fire . . . You end up feeling you have seen a fable of infinite implications enacted in a little room.' Sunday Telegraph This special acting edition, particularly suitable for schools and amateur groups, contains the full playtext as well as notes on staging, a full properties list and lighting and sound cues.
