Книга: Simon Stephens «Birdland»


Серия: "Modern Plays"

Everything can be quantified. All worth can be quantified. Artistic worth. Human worth. Material worth. Everything. Some food is simply better than other food. Isn't it? Some clothes are better than other clothes. Aren't they? The last week of a massive international tour and rock star Paul is at the height of his fame. Everybody knows his name. Whatever he wants he can have. He can screw anybody he wants to. He can buy anything he desires. He can eat anything. Drink anything. Smoke anything. Go anywhere. As the inevitability of the end of the road looms closer and a return home becomes a reality, for Paul the music is starting to jar. Birdland received its world premiere at the Royal Court Theatre Downstairs on 3 April 2014.

Simon Stephens

Simon Stephens (born 1971) is an English playwright.

Hailing originally from Stockport, Cheshire, he is now an increasingly significant voice in English theatre. His plays are often humane explorations of family life. Whilst his writing is frequently brutal, within lies an optimism and an authenticity that sets him apart from many of the In-yer-face theatre generation.

Until 2005, Stephens worked in the literary department of the Royal Court Theatre in London. While there, he held a leadership position in the Court's Young Writers' Programme.

His play, 'Pornography', received its UK premiere at the Traverse theatre in Edinburgh as part of the 2008 Edinburgh Festival.
