Bond Plays: 10 brings together recent work by the writer of the classic stage plays Saved, Lear, The Pope's Wedding and Early Morning. The volume comprises four previously unpublished plays, one previously published play and a comprehensive introduction by the author. Dea, a heroine, has committed a terrible act and has been exiled. When she meets someone from her past, she is forcefully confronted by the broken society that drove her to commit her crimes. In this play, Edward Bond takes from the Greek and Jacobean drama the fundamental classical problems of the family and war to vividly picture our collapsing society. Dea received its premiere at Sutton Theatre in 2016. The Testament of this Day is Edward Bond's third original radio drama. A young man embarks on two journeys, though he is in control of only one. He soon discovers there is no going back, from either. The play is an arresting drama about the world today and was first produced by BBC Radio 4 in 2016. The Price of One is set in among city ruins in a war zone. An occupying soldier carries a baby he has rescued from the rubble and dust. He meets a woman carrying a baby of her own. What ensues is a struggle between two enemies demanding justice in the midst of war. A modern tragedy, this play is an exploration of eternity and madness and the supermarket culture. It received its premiere in 2016. The Angry Roads considers how young people today grow up in a world that their parents never knew. In a flat a teenage boy is sorting through play things from his childhood; he is sorting through his past in search of the truth about an accident that destroyed his family. The Angry Roads was commissioned by Big Brum Theatre Company and premiered in 2015. The Hungry Bowl is a portrait of a a ghost town. Outside a harsh wind rattles the windows. Inside, people go hungry and start boarding up their homes. When a young girl insists on feeding her imaginary friend, a bitter struggle for a future ensues for the power of the imagination to transform lives. The play is a moving and audacious modern fable that explores the impact of hard times on family life, commissioned by Big Brum and premiered in 2012. The volume features an introduction by the author that looks at theatre and culture in a post-Brexit referendum, post-truth and post-Trump era.

Night Sky Night Sky Series # 1 Young Adult Paranormal with romantic elements First published 2014 Sixteen-year-old Skylar Reid’s world is turned upside down when Sasha, the little girl she babysits, is kidnapped. She’s been dreaming about Sasha—weirdly vivid dreams that feel real—even after the police insist that the girl is dead. But Sky and her best friend Calvin are determined to find Sasha—or at least find out who killed her. Then a mysterious bad-ass of a girl named Dana blasts into town on a motorcycle, and things get even weirder. Dana’s got telekinetic powers—she can move things with her mind—and she tells Sky she’s something called a “Greater-Than.” There’s a hormone in the blood of certain girls that makes them stronger, faster, smarter, and gives them amazing super powers. Oh yeah, and Sky’s a Greater-Than, too. But it’s not all fun and games, because there’s a dangerous new drug called Destiny out on the streets. It makes users young, healthy, beautiful—and profoundly evil—and it’s made from the blood of girls who are Greater-Thans. Dana warns Sky to hide her powers carefully, or the very bad people who make Destiny will grab her and bleed her dry. Still, Sky refuses to hide—she’s convinced that little Sasha is still alive. So Dana and her dangerously hot companion Milo reluctantly sign on to help Sky and Calvin… and together they form an unlikely team. Together, they’ll stop at nothing to fight Destiny—to find Sasha and bring her home. Or die trying... Night Sky is the first book in a YA series set in the same dark future as Suzanne Brockmann’s Born to Darkness, the first installment in her Fighting Destiny paranormal romance series. TheNight Skyseries has the same mix of suspense, romance, humor, and the paranormal, and deals with many of the same themes, including society’s relentless exploitation and devaluation of females, and the empowerment that comes when women and girls recognize their strength and intellect, and stand up, fight back, and save the day.
