A wild storm shakes a small East Anglian seaside village and sets off a series of events that changes the lives of all its residents. Set in the high Edwardian world of 1907, 'The Sea' is a fascinating blend of wild farce, high comedy, biting social satire and bleak poetic tragedy

Bingo & the sea : two plays by Edward Bond( Book )

Bingo : scenes of money and death ; [and, Passion] by Edward Bond( Book )

38 editions published between 1974 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Bingo' uses the last days of a brooding and unheroic William Shakespeare to accuse art and capitalism of vile inhumanity. Historical evidence suggests that not long before his death Shakespeare agreed to the enclosure of common land near Stratford, which was beneficial to landowners such as Shakespeare, but disastrous for small tenants and the parish's poor. For Bond this incident is laced with damning echoes of King Lear's injustices, and motivates his portrayal of the writer as a bourgeois and apolitical capitalist, more occupied with his profits and rents than with the distress of those who depended on the land. 'Bingo' is a thorny cry against exploitation and passivity. It was first performed in 1973 at the Northcott Theatre, Exeter
The worlds, with the activists papers by Edward Bond( Book )

14 editions published between 1970 and 2013 in English and German and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First performed at the Newcastle Playhouse in 1979, 'The Worlds' offers a clipped and lucid examination of the violent machinery of capitalism, the politics of industrial action and the use of terrorism. After a difficult week trying to deal with a strike by his organisation's employees, Trench goes away for the weekend to a smart country hotel, to dispense wisdom to his boardroom protégś. He is then suddenly kidnapped, his captors holding him hostage until the demands of the strikers are met. Meanwhile, his workers shiver on the picket line, trying to figure out why some men get to follow different rules. But while Trench is absent, his protégés find they appreciate being in charge, and the ruthlessness of the corporation turns in on itself
Human cannon by Edward Bond( Book )

10 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Human Cannon' is a narrative of class struggle, set in a small village consumed by the fight against fascism in Spain, a play which swells from resentment against the privileged landowners to blazing revolution. At the centre are Agustina and her family, who are seen in the first scene preparing to bury her nameless child, while her husband explains the violent origins of capitalism. When the war takes over the village and the play, Agustina begins by learning to fire her enemies' cannon, and ends by herself becoming - through the strength of human will - the most effective weapon in the armoury of revolution. 'Human Cannon' is a tremendous manifesto of resistance and an unflinching interpretation of the Spanish Civil War
