New Dutch and Flemish Drama

A collection of new Dutch & Flemish Drama, edited & translated by Della Couling. Offering the first collection of modern Dutch and Flemish plays to appear in English, this volume presents a cross-section of the best - and most representative - drama from the Low Countries in the 1980s and 1990s: -Set in a Dutch colony somewhere in South America in 1943, The Buddha of Ceylon by Lodewijk de Boer has at least one theme with which the British can identify, namely colonial guilt. -The Wedding Party by Judith Herzberg, the best known of the writers in this volume, introduces a varied group of people all of whom share a common involvement in the fate of the Jews. -Drummers by Flemish playwright Arne Sierens is a two-hander for the impoverished Paola and the man who turns up in answer to an advert for someone to teach drums to her teenage son. -Shot through with black humour, Karst Woudstra's Burying the Dog looks at the tortured relationship between two brothers and their partners. -The Stendhal Syndrome by Frans Strijards concerns a funeral party for a rich but irresponsible financier who has killed himself.
