Wilcox Plays: 1

Rents; Accounts; Lent; Massage


Four plays by a writer at the forefront of 80s theatre

Rents: "A superb and touching comedy about the lives of two "rent" boys in Edinburgh." (Time Out) "What you would never guess about Rents in advance is that it is so funny. Here we are faced with a story about youthful prostitution (male), poverty and urban paranoia...And yet, there it is at the Lyric Studio, Hammersmith, rolling them in the aisles. Rents is a play which touches on all kinds of problems, but it is not by any means a problem play...A wholly enjoyable experience." (Plays and Players); Accounts: "Portrays the kind of world we rarely see on the British stage...Wilcox very skilfully counterpoints the struggle of a young widow and her two sons to make a go of their farm with the two boys' attempt to cope with their emotional problems." (Guardian); Lent: "A finely tuned, intricately woven and beautifully acted period piece about adolescence and old age that operates like a time capsule, divulging its treasures by slow degrees." (Time Out) Massage revolves around a massage boy, a bicycle builder and a journalist and "startles with its compassion for two bruised egos" (City Limits) and is "shot through with wry, extremely uncomfortable perceptions." (Financial Times)
