Description

Category:Literature- DramaDramaDrama-Dra
Publisher: Faber And Faber Uk | ISBN: 9780571254729 | Pages: 0

What is so wondrous about a play so basically defeatist and hurtful is its ability to be funny. The stark, unsentimental approach to the homosexual relationship, the cynical send-up of academic life, the skeptical view of the teacher-pupil associations are all stunningly illuminated by continuous explosions of sardonic, needling, feline, vituperative and civilised lines. Evening Standard
