9781849434683: Scenes from an Execution (Oberon Modern Plays)

The best known play from one of the United Kingdom's leading contemporary dramatists, reissued alongside a major revival at The National Theatre. Darkly humorous and provocative, Barker's play makes sixteenth-century Venice the setting for a fearless exploration of sexual politics and the timeless tension between personal ambition and moral responsibility.

About the Author :

Howard Barker is one of the most significant and controversial dramatists of his time. His plays challenge, unsettle and expose. The energy, poetic language and imagination of his plays have fixed them firmly in the international repertoire. He is studied much at secondary and university level education.
