This volume presents two plays written for Deutsches Schauspielhaus Hamburg and not yet staged in English.The Rest Will Be Familiar to You from Cinema rewrites Euripides´ Phoenician Women. As Thebes braces itself for civil war, a group of terrifying young women wrest control of the action from the power-players of Greek myth. ´A brilliant new interpretation of Euripides´ ancient drama.´ Süddeutsche Zeitung´Innovative and gripping theatre.´ Hamburger AbendblattThe Rest Will Be Familiar to You from Cinema was voted Best Foreign Play 2013 by Theatre heute magazine. In Men Asleep, the late-night arrival of a younger couple at Julia and Paul´s tasteful townhouse apartment exposes the fault line between generations and probes our assumptions about gender and power. ´A mysterious and disquieting ´´nocturne´´ about human relationships.´ Die Welt´Martin Crimp is less interested in deconstructing the bourgeoisie than in investigating the altered relations between men and women . . . The ending of his intelligent and entertaining play is ambiguous and potentially terrifying.´ Der Freitag
Even down to its well-set Georgian townhouses, Edinburgh is a hymn to measure and harmony. But on Scotland Street, domestic accord is in short supply. Matthew and Elspeth welcome three new arrivals, though the joys of multiple parenthood are somewhat lost due to sleep deprivation and the difficulties of telling their brood apart. Angus and Domenica are to marry, and Domenica has ambitious and disturbing plans for their living arrangements, especially when it appears that Antonia, in Italy recuperating from Stendhal Syndrome, may not return. And little Bertie, feeling blue, puts himself up for adoption on eBay. Can Edinburgh´s most deliciously dysfunctional residents forsake discord and learn to dance to the same happy tune? 1.
