Serious money by Caryl Churchill( Book )

7 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A breathless, exhilarating crash course in the low morality of high finance (Independent). Serious Money is perhaps Caryl Churchill's most notorious play. A satirical study of the effects of the Big Bang, it premiered at the Royal Court in 1987 and transferred to the West End. Since then, it has prompted city financiers the world over to applaud and decry its presentation of their lives. British Telecom refused to provide telephones for the Wyndham's production, writing to say that 'This is a production with which no public company would wish to be associated'" from back cover
The malcontent by John Marston( Book )

6 editions published between 1975 and 1994 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The true Duke of Genoa has lost his throne to the usurper Pietro. The Duke returns to court in disguise in order to expose the corruption and regain his rightful office. Resonating with echoes of Measure for Measure and Hamlet, Marston's tragicomedy is a fabulous study of courtly intrigue, betrayal and treachery."--Jacket

Our country's good : based on the The playmaker, a novel by Thomas Keneally by Timberlake Wertenbaker( Book )

5 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Winner of the Laurence Olivier Play of the Year Award in 1988, and many other major awards, 'Our Country's Good' was first produced at the Royal Court Theatre in 1988. Wertenbaker's adaptation of Keneally's novel 'The Playmaker' concerns a group of Royal Marines and convicts in a penal colony in New South Wales in the 1780s, who put on a production of 'The Recruiting Officer'. The play shows the class system in the convict camp and discusses themes such as sexuality, punishment, the Georgian judicial system, and the idea that that it is possible for 'theatre to be a humanising force'

The plot follows the fortunes of opposing lovers, one a woman of quality masquerading as a courtesan and one a wandering rake whose philandering days end when he falls in love with her. Several near-rapes and the tragic case of a jilted courtesan, another character in the play, balance the comic treatment of sexual politics in the seventeenth century
