James Graham Plays: 2 Summary

James Graham Plays: 2: This House; The Angry Brigade; The Vote; Monster Raving Loony by James Graham

The second collection of plays from eminent playwright James Graham, bringing together four of his state-of-the-nation plays. The volume includes the following plays, alongside an introduction by the author: This House (2012) explores Westminster and the 1974 hung parliament through a combination of wit and waspish dialogue, comedy and political comment, and historical and contemporary concerns. The Angry Brigade (2014) takes a look at the story behind the Angry Brigade - a British anarchist group who carried out a series of bomb attacks between 1970 and 1972. The Vote (2015) looks at what happens in Britain on election night through the eyes of those at the polling station. Set in a fictional London polling station, Graham's play dramatises the final ninety minutes before the polls close in the 2015 general election. Monster Raving Loony (2016) explores the life and exploits of Screaming Lord Sutch to examine the state of the nation and Britain's post-war identity crisis. It tells the story of Sutch through a cavalcade of comic characters from music hall to Monty Python, panto to Partridge.

Could he be the next David Hare? * Observer *
Graham has a formidable track-record as a chronicler of modern history * Guardian *
