Description


Introduced by Marius von Mayenburg, this volume presents four of Benedict Andrews' original plays: Like a Sun, Every Breath, Dream Girl, and a short, characterless 'history' play, Geronimo. Andrews is a multi-award-winning director known for his radical versions of masterpieces by Shakespeare, Anton Chekhov and Tennessee Williams, as well as his stagings of cutting-edge contemporary writers.

About the Author


Benedict Andrews' previously published work includes versions of Chekhov's The Seagull (Belvoir St, Sydney) and Three Sisters (Young Vic). With Andrew Upton, he co-translated Genet's The Maids for production at Sydney Theatre Company and on Broadway for the Lincoln Center Festival. He collaborated with Tom Wright on adapting Shakespeare's Histories for the marathon cycle The War of the Roses for the 2009 Sydney and Perth Festivals. He also adapted, with Beatrix Christian, Calderon de la Barca's Life is a Dream. Benedict's first collection of poetry Lens Flare was published by Pitt Street Press in 2014. Every Breath was translated by Jorge Silva Melo for a production in Lisbon in 2013 and was nominated for Time Out Lisbon's Best Play award.

Praise For…


‘A bracingly original vision: [Andrews] turns the play inside out, bashes it around, and drops in anachronisms, yet his approach yields revelatory results... moving and absorbing’ Evening Standard onThree Sisters
