    A revolutionary himself, George Büchner was 21 when he wrote the play in 1835, while hiding from the police. With its hair-raising on-rush of scenes and vivid dramatization of complex, visionary characters, Danton's Death has a claim to be the greatest political tragedy ever written. In his newly-revised translation, Howard Brenton captures Büchner's exhilarating energy as Danton struggles to avoid his inexorable fall.In 1794 the French Revolution reaches its climax. After a series of bloody purges the life-loving, volatile Danton is tormented by his part in the killing. His political rival, the driven, ascetic Robespierre, decides Danton's fate. A titanic struggle begins. Once friends who wanted to change the world, now one stands for compromise the other for ideological purity as the guillotine awaits. This is your rhetoric translated. These wretches, these executioners, the guillotine are your speeches come to life. You have built your doctrines out of human heads… Why should an event that transforms the whole of humanity not advance through blood?

    A divine revelation on the road to Damascus moves Saul to renounce his former life. He changes his name, converts from Judaism, and devotes himself to preaching the Gospel.Taking the remarkable life and moral teachings of this profound religious thinker, Howard Brenton explores the extraordinary phenomenon of faith. While the play offers a secular reading of the story of Christ's resurrection, at its heart Paul preaches from his Letter to the Corinthians, the eloquence of which cannot fall to move.This irreverent, provocative new play by the author of The Romans in Britain premiered at the National Theatre, London.

    Pravda (which means "truth") is a comedy of excess which, for the first time puts modern Fleet Street on the stage. "Pravda is an epic comedy - part The Front Page, part Arturo Ui - in which a press baron resembling Rupert Murdoch…does battle with over 30 characters as he conquers Fleet Street journalism and by implication, liberal England's soul." (Frank Rich, New York Times) This is Howard Brenton's and David Hare's first collaboration since Brassneck in 1973. It was premiered at The National Theatre in spring 1985 and awarded the London Standard Best Play Award, the City Limits Best Play Award and the Plays and Players Best Play Award.
