9780143035480: Resurrection Blues (Penguin Plays)

Penultimate play of international importance from the greatest playwright of the twentieth century High in the mountains of a South American banana republic, a revolution is brewing. When the rebels' messiah-like leader is captured, a New York production company swoops in to televise his execution - death by crucifixion - and an explosive chain of events ensues. Humorous, poetic and thought provoking, Resurrection Blues brilliantly satirises misguided global politics and the predatory nature of a media saturated culture.Arguably the twentieth century's finest playwright, Arthur Miller's landmark works include Death of a Salesman and The Crucible. This astonishing black comedy was completed just a month before his death in Februaruy 2005. The play receives its British premiere on 14 February 2006 at the Old Vic, London, directed by Robert Altman, the legendary film-maker whose work includes Gosford Park, Short Cuts and Nashville. 'a funny, pertinent and sharp-toothed satire aimed at the materialist maladies of modern America' Guardian
