Stephens Plays: 3

Harper Regan, Punk Rock, Marine Parade and On the Shore of the Wide World


This third collection of plays by Simon Stephens showcases the development of one of the most exciting and impressive theatre talents of recent years. The range of plays in this volume displays a tough sensibility and a courage to confront the more unsettling challenges of our times.
"Harper Regan" follows a woman's road trip through the heart of England in a violent and comic exploration of the moralities of sex and death. Quietly harrowing, this play is a barometer for our times exploring dark secrets and familial estrangement.
"Marine Parade" is a musical about sex, betrayal and hope, set in a run-down B&B on Brighton's waterfront. A moving and poignant play, it 'captures the peculiar aroma of Brighton, with its mix of the bracing and the melancholy' ("Guardian)."
Olivier award-winning play "On the Shore of the Wide World" is an epic piece about love, family, Roy Keane and the size of the galaxy.
"Punk Rock "is based Stephens' experience as a teacher and he describes this play as '"The History Boys" on crack'. It explores the underlying tensions and potential violence in a group of affluent, articulate seventeen year old students.
