Taking the form of an end-of-term play at a minor public school, "Forty Years On" presents a satirical review of recent English history. The play was first performed in 1968 with John Gielgud and Bennett himself in the leading roles. "Getting On" is about the personal life of a Labour MP and won the Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy in 1971. Also included in this book is the play "Habeous Corpus", a witty farce set in Brighton's plush area of Hove and "Enjoy" which uncannily foresaw the attitudes to English working-class life now enshrined in the theme parks of the UK. The author of the plays also provides an introduction to the background and writing of each play.

About the Author:

ALAN BENNETT has been one of our leading dramatists since the success of Beyond the Fringe in the 1960s. His television series Talking Heads has become a modern-day classic, as have many of his works for stage including Forty Years On, The Lady in the Van, A Question of Attribution, The Madness of George III (together with the Oscar-nominated screenplay The Madness of King George), and The History Boys. His collection of prose, Untold Stories, won the PEN/Ackerley Prize for autobiography, 2006. The Uncommon Reader was published in 2007 and Smut was published in 2011.
