The misanthrope by Molière ( Book )
12 editions published between 1973 and 1979 in English and Undetermined and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Affection I can endure, affectation I abhor. Empty phrases, meaningless gestures of faked good-will. These affable dispensers of embraces make me ill. Disgusted with French society where powdered fops gossip in code and bejewelled coquettes whisper behind fans, poet Alceste embarks on a one-man crusade against fakery, frippery and forked tongues. But could the woman he adores be the worst culprit of them all? And in this rarefied world will his revolution prove merely revolting?

12 editions published between 1975 and 2013 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story seen through this arresting perspective with the ancient and vengeful Gods of India taking over from the Greek furies takes on a special vibrancy. 'Phaedra Britannica' was first performed by the National Theatre Company at the Old Vic in September 1975

Square rounds by Tony Harrison ( Book )
6 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A 'theatre piece' rather than a play, 'Square Rounds' is a meditation on armaments pioneers in the Great War. Written in verse and played by a large cast of women (some of whom have to get in drag to play the male boffins), the piece is a theatrical exploration of the double-edged nature of 'scientific progress'. 'Square Rounds' premiered at the Olivier Theatre, National Theatre, London, in October 1992
