A play about grief and looking at someone that little bit more closely. Tom's brother Luke is dead. This has upset a lot of people but it hasn't upset Tom. Or, rather, it has upset him, but in ways he can't explain and other people can't understand. You see, Tom and Luke were never friends. In fact, Tom didn't really like Luke at all. So it's an odd decision - to try and bury Luke in the pavement of the Tunstall Estate where he was killed. But to Tom, it sort of makes sense, in a stupid-weird kind of way. As he sleeps out on the pavement, he comes across planning officials, tramps, undertakers, police officers, sisters, mothers, estate agents, ghosts, pavement elephants, sky dragons and a strange lad called Tight who wants to sell him a Travelcard. Written specifically for young people, Burying Your Brother in the Pavement was part of the 2008 National Theatre Connections Festival and was premiered by youth theatres across the UK.

Condemned by the mother of Jamie Bulger and acclaimed by the critics - for tackling the subject of child killers - this is the controversial new play from the winner of the Sunday Times Playwriting Prize 2001 Few kids have a secret as chilling as Timmy's. Stephanie loves Raquel to death. Acutely topical, darkly satirical and brutally uncompromising - these two monologues explore the shattering of childhood innocence. "The play opens up a moral minefield. Who can, or should, consent to what? Can anyone consent to something on the behalf of another? What power can anyone, a person or a community, have over the mind and life of another? Morris's play sends you out in a state of moral turbulence." (John Peter, Sunday Times) "For once, the play at the eye of an Edinburgh storm is a good one" - Guardian "This 70-minute play would alone have been worth a trip to Edinburgh" - Sunday Times "If The Age of Consent had been written by the sainted Alan Bennett it would be acclaimed as a triumph" - Daily Telegraph The Age of Consent is published to tie in with its London premiere at the Bush Theatre in January 2002

Two troubled, disturbing but bleakly funny plays from a leading writer of Channel 4's Shameless and Skins. In Stacy, the sole protagonist, Rob, finds life confusing in a world of unwritten rules. If there's no one around to tell him right from wrong, except for a copy of FHM and a call-centre supervisor, he just has to guess. But he's never been very lucky, and sometimes he gets his guesses very wrong... 'a pin-sharp, brilliant piece of work' Time Out Critics Choice 'a challenging, disturbing and distinctive new voice' Times 'This one man show will blow your socks off... one of the most entertaining nights I've had at the theatre' London Lite Fanny and Faggot presents two distinct moments in the life of Mary Bell: her trial when accused of the murder of two small boys, and her escape from the open prison in 1977, when she spent the weekend on the run in Blackpool and lost her virginity. 'Jack Thorne is hot... a darkly gripping achievement, probing the most horrifying extremes of human behaviour with compassion and a rigorous moral and intellectual curiosity' Times

A painful – and painfully funny – play about being very young and in love – and coping with serious illness at the same time. Rachel and Peter are seventeen. They have been going out for six months. It's love's young dream. Then Rachel gets ill – seriously ill. She doesn't want her mum to fuss; she doesn't want Alice to pretend she's her best friend; and she certainly doesn't want Alice's boyfriend telling bad jokes at her bedside. The only person she wants is Peter, but Peter doesn't know what it is that he wants. When You Cure Me is a bittersweet and poignant tale of love and misunderstanding – and discovering that what you say and do can be very different from what you think and feel.

A Pretext for War reveals the systematic weaknesses behind the failure to detect or prevent the 9/11 attacks, and details the Bush administration’s subsequent misuse of intelligence to sell preemptive war to the American people. Filled with unprecedented revelations, from the sites of “undisclosed locations” to the actual sources of America’s Middle East policy, A Pretext for War is essential reading for anyone concerned about the security of the United States. Acclaimed author James Bamford–whose classic book The Puzzle Palace first revealed the existence of the National Security Agency–draws on his unparalleled access to top intelligence sources to produce a devastating expose of the intelligence community and the Bush administration.

This is the first volume exclusively dedicated to planning education, with a focus on India and learning from global experiences for India. Prior to the 1990s, planning education in India was largely confined to national and local economic concerns. Within a globalized scenario, such pedagogies and theories have become outmoded. With new concerns emerging in planning, new pedagogical tools and theorizations need to be developed within planning curricula to provide today’s planners with the wherewithal to adapt to changing and globalizing cities and regions in India. Therefore, the eminent contributors to this volume deal exclusively and comprehensively with planning education in a globalized context. Divided into four thematic sections, this volume provides a comprehensive view of planning education in India, with focus on: • The trajectory of planning education in India.• The kinds of knowledge used for teaching in Indian planning schools, and whether some sort of integration of diverse knowledges is achieved. • The ethical foundations of urban and regional planning in Indian planning schools. • The role of international planning perspectives in providing new insights for Indian planning education. Comprehensive and topical, this volume is of interest to academics and researchers from planning institutes, urban and regional planners and policy makers, as well as architects, social geographers and economists.

A poetic, explosive thriller about teenagers on a night out that ends in violence. Winner of Metamorphosis 2008. In Bromley every Friday night, same time and place, Potts, Baron and Finch get ready for their weekly dose of booze, birds and burgers. But their night out takes a dramatic and terrifying twist when an explosion rocks the town centre, and a suspicious population points the finger at them. ''"Overspill" is set in Bromley, but it could be set in any town anywhere in the UK. There are hundreds of Bromleys in Britaina These are the towns that millions of us grow up in.'' - "Ali Taylor" ''Ali Taylor''s slice of urban life is small but thrilling. It is driven by a pulsating rhythm, a sense of place, a menacing undercurrent of casual violence waiting to erupt, and a layered story that suggests the lads'' friendship was about to be blown apart by other factors as adolescence gives way to adulthood. The writing is gritty and sweaty, with a tom cat swagger and cut with half-rhymes and littered with assonance and alliteration... a tiny gem''- "Guardian" ''A dazzling display of dramatic virtuosity... darkly polished, thrillingly inventive... gleams with gutter poetry''- "Time Out""
