The first collection of plays by Scotland's National Poet and beloved playwright. Includes: Blood and Ice, Mary Queen of Scots Got Her Head Chopped Off, Quelques Fleurs, Perfect Days, and Good Things. All five plays, while very different, feature Lochhead's special language: a blend of the intensely colloquial and energetically poetic.
Liz Lochhead, currently the National Poet of Scotland and one of that country's best-known living playwrights, wrote her first play, Blood and Ice, in 1982. Since then there has been a steady stream of highly inventive original plays, adaptations and translations, all crafted with Lochhead's special language, a blend of the intensely colloquial and the energetically poetic. Her other plays include Dracula, Educating Agnes, Misery Guts, Thebans and Medea. She lives in Glasgow.
