9781854597908: Almost Nothing & At the Table

Part of the Royal Court’s ground-breaking international season, these plays are a unique double-bill of new Brazilian plays in English translation. Both plays are avowedly influenced by Harold Pinter, but have their own uncanny way of building atmosphere by what is not said. Barbosa’s writing hints at the murky morality that lies beneath the surface of normal life.
