Descrizione del libro

30 novembre 2005
New play from the winner of the 2004 Olivier Award for Most Promising Newcomer, published alongside the premiere at the Royal Court. A husband and wife row about a prescription. A mother and father row about their son, who has become a child soldier. Two sisters row about which one is superior to the other. It emerges that the younger sister, Mary, has killed the child soldier. She is to be stoned to death. Mysterious yet compelling, bewildering yet intoxicating, Stoning Mary is a mix of Caryl Churchill, Sarah Kane and Edward Bond - yet debbie tucker green has a voice all of her onw: one which mixes poetic rhythms with vernacular phrases, rap-song repetitions with complex psychology.

Formato:Copertina flessibile
People dying in their millions from HIV/AIDS. Children being forced into service as soldiers. Women being stoned to death. Such stories are familiar to anyone who watches the evening news. But they're always happening to other people, in other cultures, in some comfortingly far off place. In "Stoning Mary" they aren't. They're happening right here, in this country. Right now. To people just like you. A couple fight over the single prescription they can afford for the AIDS medication they both need. Suburban parents wait for their child-soldier son to return home. A young girl waits in prison to be stoned to death for the unforgivable crime of killing a man. But these people aren't foreigners. They're us... Like Brecht and Pinter before her, Debbie Tucker Green "makes strange" the familiar, and to shocking effect. The abstract third-world atrocities we take for granted are plucked from the realm of global politics and thrust into the context of our own domestic lives. We are asked to see the people at their centre not in terms of economics or militarism, not as statistics to be deplored, nor even as pawns in the grand narratives of colonialism and globalization. We see them as they are: flesh and blood; mothers, fathers, husbands, wives, children, siblings; heartbroken, cunning, angry and flawed, railing against indignity and desperation. The play takes them out of the realm of human rights and puts them back into the realm of human being. The result is a bracing assault on our complacency. As Tony Blair observed at the World Economic Forum in January 2005: "If what is happening in Africa today were happening in any other part of the world, there would be such a scandal and clamour that governments would be falling over themselves to act in response." "Stoning Mary" imagines it is so. The result is a play that performs art's ultimate magic trick: it makes us see the world from another's point of view. Makes us feel it, too. It conjures that rarest of global commodities - empathy.
