The plays in this volume, which complements Selected Plays 1963-1983 are Largo Desolato, Temptation and Redevelopment in versions by Tom Stoppard, George Theiner and James Saunders respectively.
Their themes are freedom of thought, Faustian opportunism and town planning as metaphors for life in Eastern Europe before the collapse of Communism, all handled with their author’s characteristic wit and irony, and written before he was translated from a prison to the highest office of state.
