On a cold morning in Northern England, a large group of men gather in the changing rooms of their local rugby club, preparing for the match. Through David Storey's three-act play we see the players, and the men who own, run and work for the club, before the match, at half-time and after the game has finished. What emerges from this tripartite structure is a touching picture of camaraderie, community and commitment to their team. 'The Changing Room' was first performed at the Royal Court in November 1971

A novel about family and class restrictions by the Man Booker Prize{u2013}winning author of This Sporting Life and Saville With 2 rooms downstairs and 3 upstairs, the house at Spinney Moor Road is a real step-up for the Morley family. Arthur Morley is a farmer who frequently comes home drunk, and who often competes with his prudish, penny-pinching wife, Sarah, for the love of their boys, Alan and Bryan. It is Bryan, the younger son, who begins to want more out of life. He yearns for something better and finds it when he goes to live with the childless Fay Corrigan at her posh home in town during the week, while attending a prep school that she pays for. But Bryan soon feels a growing chasm between his new life and the world he left behind. And his mounting jealous-erotic obsession with the much-older Fay leads to actions{u2014}and consequences{u2014}that will reverberate for years to come. Beginning in the 1930s and concluding with the onset of World War II, A Prodigal Child is a novel about adolescent yearning, familial devotion, and the stifling conventions of class

On Christmas Eve, Arthur breaks his two front teeth. A teammate on the rugby pitch is too slow with a handoff, and instead of catching the ball, Art catches an opponent's foot right in the mouth. When he regains consciousness, the match is almost over, but he keeps playing regardless. Where else would he go? His entire life, Art has only cared about sports and nothing grabs his attention quite like the lightning-fast violence of Rugby League. He knows it could kill him, but it also makes him feel alive. In this hard-bitten Yorkshire mining town, the warriors of the rugby pitch are treated like gods. Through the aggressive sport, Art finds money, friends, and countless women. But when his lust for violence begins to fade, will he have the courage to leave the game behind?

"Victor Tolson, a demoniac creature of massive proportions -- a man who destroys things out of his affections for them -- stalks Leonard Radcliffe, desiring to dominate and possess his remarkable, strangely innocent, nature. Radcliffe, the last product of a once-aristocratic family, recognises in Tolson everything that he himself is not, a man of irresistible strength, effectiveness, beauty and evil. Exploring a relationship of exceptional intensity between two men, each of whom, incomplete in himself, finds in the other a complementary and compulsive need, Radcliffe gradually reaches a pitch which can only end in cataclysmic confrontation."--Back cover
