BRENTON, Howard. Christie in Love and other plays [includes Christie in Love, Heads, and The Education of Skinny Spew]. (London: Methuen & Co. Ltd., 1970). First Paperback Printing. Pp. (7),-54. Small 8vo, printed white and black card covers with red and white lettering to front cover, black lettering to white spine. A Methuen Playscript. "'Christie in Love' is one of several plays staged in 1969 by different companies which together made Howard Brenton the joint winner of the John Whiting Award for 1969. First presented by the Portable Theatre as part of their autumn touring season for 1969, 'Christie in Love' is a vivid and harrowing sixty-minute play. Also included in this volume are two short one-act plays, 'The Education of Skinny Spew' and 'Heads'. [...] In 'Christie in Love' [Brenton] catches the peculiar cosy horror which surrounded our most senational murder-trial of the fifties. ... I suspect that in Brenton we may have the British theatre's first major disciple of Genet." - from first leaf review. Stamp of Caribbean BookCentre inside front cover, else very good.
