About the Author
Edward Bond is one of the great British playwrights of the twentieth/twenty-first centuries. In 1965 his grim portrait of urban violence, Saved, in which a baby is stoned in its pram, aroused much admiration as well as a ban from the Lord Chamberlain. In 2006 there were revivals of several of two of his major plays: Lear and Restoration. Methuen Drama publishes eight volumes of his work.
