Maud, a decidedly eccentric woman, lives in a dilapidated mock-Tudor Victorian house with her son Mo. The other children, Hedley, an ineffectual Labour MP, and Queenie, an expatriate in America, arrive and try to persuade Maud to go to a modem 'duplex' in London, and Mo to join Queenie in California, but both prefer to remain as they are. Not all of us, Mo says, 'want freedom. Captivity has its points as well.' --www.doollee.com

Poppy by Peter Nichols( Book )

14 editions published between 1982 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 'Poppy', Peter Nichols subverts the pantomime, an archetypal piece of Victoriana, to explore a particularly dark moment in the history of Victorian colonialism - the Opium Wars. Classic panto hero Dick Whittington sets sail for India to seek his fortune in the opium trade, encountering such luminaries as the emperor of China and Queen Victoria along the way. Although the British characters ultimately live happily ever after, the implications for the defeated Chinese are much darker. 'Poppy' won the Olivier Award for Best New Musical when it was first staged by the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1982

Blue murder : a play or two by Peter Nichols( Book )

8 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Blue Murder', first presented at the Quakers Friars, Bristol, in 1995, is a two-part farce in which conservative suburbia and Whitehall collide with murders, porn stars and blackmailers, and a playwright trying to keep up with them all. Subtitled 'a play or two', it opens with 'Foreign Bodies', where swinging London meets bourgeois Shrewsbury and the drinks are laced with cyanide. As the son of the household struggles to write his first play, a murder story is offered to him on a plate. The second half, 'A Game of Soldiers', is a Whitehall farce taking place in St James's Palace. The same dramatist has brought his complete play to be censored but the Lord Chamberlain's Men have a few shameful secrets of their own to hide, including a priapic guardsman. Once the actors start to have tantrums about the size of their parts, the whole ridiculous structure begins to tumble
