Overview

"Young playwrights don't come much hotter than Phyllis Nagy" (Daily Telegraph)

Includes
her three Royal Court -performed plays Weldon Rising "Here is the best
new play I have seen in many months...This play is exciting because it
is well written, unusually constructed and morally serious." (Financial
Times); in Butterfly Kiss "Nagy captures the texture of a life and
writes short, vivid, often disturbingly erotic scenes...it's a play
that leaves me proclaiming Nagy a writer of real talent" (Guardian),
Disappeared (winner of the Mobil Prize,1995) "A piece that gets right
under your skin...There's no neat solution to Nagy's conundrum, just a
fog of fear, despair, and most remarkably of all, a final mirage of
escape. Spine-tingling stuff" (Daily Telegraph) The Strip,
"kaleidoscopic and hugely accomplished dissection of fate, love and
chance" (Independent)

"Each play I see by Phyllis Nagy confirms
me in the belief that she is the finest playwright to have emerged in
the 1990s" (Financial Times)
