About the Author:

David Hare was born in Sussex, England in 1947. His first play, Slag, was produced in 1970. His other works include Plenty (1978), A Map of the World (1983), and Pravda (1985). A founder of the Portable Theatre and the Joint Stock, he became resident dramatist and literary manager of the Royal Court Theatre, London (1967–71), and at the Nottingham Playhouse (1973). Until recently, Hare served as director of the National Theatre, London. In 1982, Hare founded a film company, Greenpoint Films. He has written several screenplays including Plenty (1985), Weatherby (1985), Strapless (1989), and Damage (1992). Several of his best-known plays, The Secret Rapture, Racing Demon, Skylight, The Judas Kiss, Via Dolorosa and Amy's View have been presented on Broadway.

Review:

“The nearest any English contemporary writer has come to emulating Brecht.” ―Financial Times on Fanshen

“A brilliant piece of writing: a witty, complex and ultimately uplifting play about the relationship of the West to the Third World.” ―Guardian on A Map of the World

“An impressive new film which vividly captures the last desperate days in Vietnam as the Reds laid siege to the sweltering city.” ―Daily Express on Saigon: Year of the Cat

“Witty, cerebral and full of fine-spun ironies.” ―Guardian on The Bay at Nice

“One of the best plays since the war...the finest British dramatist of his generation.” ―Sunday Times on The Secret Rapture
