Behind the Beautiful Forevers

Behind the Beautiful Forevers
India is surging with global ambition. But beyond the luxury hotels surrounding Mumbai airport lies a makeshift slum, full of people with plans of their own. Zehrunisa and her son Abdul aim to recycle enough rubbish to fund a proper house. Sunil, twelve and stunted, wants to eat until he's as tall as Kalu the thief. Asha seeks to steal government anti-poverty funds to turn herself into a 'first-class person', while her daughter Manju intends to become the slum's first female graduate. But their schemes are fragile; global recession threatens the garbage trade, and another slum-dweller is about to make an accusation that will destroy herself and shatter the neighbourhood.

Notes:
Katherine Boo spent three years in Annawadi recording the lives of its residents. From her uncompromising book, winner of the National Book Award for Non-Fiction 2012, David Hare has fashioned a tumultuous play on an epic scale.

Breath Of Life, The

Breath Of Life, The
Life being what it is, one dreams of revenge. Gaugin's epithet serves as the motto for this moral tale of two women, both in their 60s, whose lives are interwoven in ways neither of them yet understands. Madeleine Palmer is a retired curator, living alone on the Isle of Wight. One day Francis Beale comes to her door, a woman she has met only once, and who is now enjoying sudden success, late in life, as a popular novelist. the progress of a single night comes fascinatingly to echo the hidden course of their lives . . .

Damage

Synopsis:
the first person narrator of the novel is Dr Stephen Fleming (Irons in the movie), a medical doctor turned politician whose promotion from MP to cabinet member is imminent. Just then Fleming is casually introduced to his grown-up son's enigmatic girlfriend anna (Binoche) and helplessly falls for her. For as long as it lasts, Martyn, his son, has no idea that his Father is having an extra-marital affair with his girlfriend (and later fiancee), and anna does not seem to mind being a young man's partner and simultaneously his father's lover and object of desire. Fleming enjoys a brief period of sexual bliss meeting anna in various european cities and having sex with her in unlikely places. eventually, he buys her a small flat in central London where they meet on a regular basis. One day Martyn happens to get hold of that address and, curious, goes there to investigate. He climbs up a flight of stairs to the top floor, opens the unlocked door to the apartment, and is shocked to see his Father making love to his

Enemies

Enemies
1905. Russia is at a turning point. Zakhar Bardin is from the landowning class, but is now the uneasy owner of a factory. His managing director is determined to face down militant workers on a point of principle. But the shutting of the business has tragic consequences for everyone concerned. Gorky's extraordinary play, which was written in exile and banned in his home country, presents a panoramic view of a restless society, with a bourgeoisie no longer sure of its own values, and a working class steadily facing up to the terrifying sacrifices ahead. Described by Ronald Bryden in the Observer in 1971 as 'a real discovery . . . the missing link between Chekhov and the Russian revolution', enemies has a Dramatic breadth, humour and ambition unique to Gorky.

Original Playwright - Maxim Gorky. In A version by David Hare from A literal translation by Charlotte Pike

Gethsemane

Gethsemane
Once it was possible to do good by being good. Now the only way to do good is by being clever. Nothing is more important to a modern political party than fund-raising. But the values of the donors can't always coincide with the professed beliefs of the party. and family scandal within the cabinet has the potential to throw both the money-raisers and the money-spenders into chaos. This richly imagined ensemble play about British public life looks at the way business, media and politics are now intertwined to nobody's advantage, as, in an unforgiving world, one character after another passes through Gethsemane.

Synopsis:
Five daughters live together in a single household with a tyrannical mother. When the Father of all but the eldest girl dies, a cynical marriage is advanced which will have tragic consequences for the whole family. Lorca's fascinatingly modern play, rendered here in a new english version, speaks as powerfully as a political metaphor of oppression as it does as domestic Drama.

Judas Kiss, The

Judas Kiss, The
If equal affection cannot be / Let the more loving one be me.' Auden's famous couplet expresses the dilEmma at the heart of David Hare's fascinating exploration of Oscar Wilde's relationship with Lord Alfred Douglas. the author speculates on two incidents in Wilde's life of which we know little, in order to present a play whose true subject is not Wilde, but love; not Bosie, but betrayal.

Master Builder

Master Builder
The change will come. And it's not far away, I promise you that. Some figure will emerge from the dark screaming 'Get out of the way'. And not far behind others will follow... The young are waiting. In all their power. Knocking on the door. The master builder Halvard Solness has a fear of falling. A self-made man, without professional qualifications, he has achieved domination in the town but he's increasingly frightened of being displaced by the young. A woman, Hilde Wangel, appears from the mountains, claiming to have known Solness ten years previously, and telling him of a promise he made to her when she thirteen. David Hare has written a new adaptation of one of Henrik Ibsen's most complex autobiographical masterpieces - a mesmeric exploration of control, power, lust and death, which builds to a vertiginous climax.

Moderate Soprano, The

Moderate Soprano, The
Nobody can doubt John Christie's passion or his formidable will: he wooed his opera singer wife with a determination befitting a man who won the Military Cross. Now, in 1934, this Etonian science teacher's admiration for the works of Wagner leads him to embark on an ambitious project: the construction of an Opera House on his estate in Sussex. But such is the scale of the enterprise that passion alone may not be enough. It's only when a famous violinist is accidentally fogged in overnight in Eastbourne that Christie first hears word of a group of refugees for whom life in Germany is becoming impossible. Perhaps they can deliver Christie's vision of the sublime - assuming of course they're willing to cast his wife in the lead. . .

Synopsis:
Charlotte Rampling plays a more challenging role than usual in this anti-Thatcherite tale with a which is subtle enough to catch the ironies of life and the foibles of homo sapiens.

Permanent Way, The; Or, La Voie Anglais

Permanent Way, The; Or, La Voie Anglais
In 1991, before an election they did not expect to win, the Conservative government made a fateful decision to privatise the railways. Now, twelve years later, as a result of that privatisation, the taxpayer subsidizes rail more lavishly than ever before. In the Permanent Way, David Hare, working with actors from the Out of joint Company, tells the intricate, madcap story of a dream gone sour, by gathering together the first hand accounts of those most intimately involved - from every level of the system. Funny, tragic and compelling, the play offers an extraordinary parable of British mismanagement that raises questions about the recent history of the country

Power Of Yes, The: A Dramatist Seeks To Understand the Financial Crisis

Power Of Yes, The: A Dramatist Seeks To Understand the Financial Crisis
On 15 September 2008, capitalism came to a grinding halt. as sub-prime mortgages and toxic securities continued to dominate the headlines, this spring the National theatre asked David Hare to write an urgent and immediate work to be staged this autumn that sought to find out what had happened, and why. Meeting with many of the key players from the financial world, David Hare has created the Power of Yes, which is not so much a play as a jaw-dropping account of how, as the banks went bust, capitalism was replaced by a socialism that bailed out the rich alone.

Seagull, The

Seagull, The
On a summer's day in a makeshift theatre by a lake, a bold new play is to be performed. It is the work of a young, would-be playwright, Konstantin, who is searching for a new, more authentic dramatic form. The play stars his beautiful muse and neighbour, Nina. The assembled family audience includes his actress mother, Arkadina, who has just arrived from Moscow with the famous novelist, Trigorin. What happens during, and in the days immediately after, this play's first performance will change not just the course of the summer, but the lives of everyone involved, for ever after. This masterly meditation on love and art is both comic and tragic, and marks the birth of the modern stage.

Stuff Happens
the famous response of Donald Rumsfeld, American Secretary of Defense, to the looting of Baghdad, at a press conference on 11 April 2003, provides the title for a new play, specially written for the Olivier theatre, about the extraordinary process leading up to the invasion of Iraq. How does the world settle its differences, now there is only one superpower? What happens to leaders risking their credibility with sceptical publics? From events which have dominated international headlines for the last two years David Hare has fashioned both a historical narrative and a human Drama about the frustrations of power and the limits of diplomacy.
