Throughout this, the first collection of short stories from playwright Deborah Levy, knowledge and intuition, science and love are juxtaposed as conflicting sources of motivation. Each character portrayed embodies a dilemma and enacts a drama in settings that vary from Ibiza to Camden Town, from rural Spain to a precarious rowing-boat. The author is concerned with chaos and loss of hope, with corruption and commitment to finding a truth. She takes our world as it is, as it has been and life as it could be. Deborah Levy is an actress, poet and playwright whose plays "Heresies" and "Ruins" were commissioned by The Royal Shakespeare Company.

Ophelia And the Great Idea
About the Author:
Deborah Levy was born in 1969, studied theatre at Dartington College of Arts, and now lives in London. Her plays include Pax, which City Limits considred 'remarkable for its combination of intellectual rigour, poetic fantasy and visual imagination' and Heresies for the Royal Shakespeare Company, 'An ambitious, imaginative, sometimes funny, sometimes touching, passage across a terrain where moral parables and folk fancies meet' (Marina Warner, Independent). She has also published a collection of short stories, Ophelia and the Great Idea, and a novel, Beautiful Mutants, and, most recently, Swallowing Geography, all of which are published by Vintage.
