Cartwright Plays Road , Bed , Two , Rise and Fall of Little Voice

by Jim Cartwright

Part of the Contemporary Dramatists Series

Cartwright Plays Road , Bed , Two , Rise and Fall of Little Voice Synopsis

Road: A surreal vision of the contemporary urban landscape...uncomfortable and magical, funny and bitter. It is a northern Under Milk Wood, high on pills and booze (Sunday Times). Bed: Cartwright writes better about old people than anyone I know, except perhaps Beckett. This is an odd, harrowing and hilarious piece, entirely without sentimentality, sturdy but moving. (John Peter, Sunday Times) Two: A sharp, salty quickfire evocation of the surface gaiety and underlying melancholia of English pub life. (Michael Billington, The Guardian). The Rise and Fall of Little Voice: A northern showbiz fairytale, a backstreet Cinderella story, with a built-in kick. (Guardian)
