Jack Rosenthal's name stands high in the list of television's greatest dramatists. With a career that started on early episodes of Coronation Street, he was well-advised to launch into writing plays and began by drawing on his own experiences in The Evacuees directed by a young Alan Parker. Jack Rosenthal brought to his writing knowledge of, and love for, the everyman; the man or woman in the street, the worker, labourer, taxi driver, parent and child. Witty, insightful, rich in irony and human observation, even his villains reveal a human side he couldn't resist exploring. These five plays capture a playwright at his zenith, in a range of work that speaks both to his experience and his empathy. Featuring Maureen Lipman, Maria Charles, Adrienne Posta, Jonathan Lynn, John Duttine, Tom Wilkinson, Anna Carteret and Laura Howard, they are sure to be treasured by anyone who appreciates fine drama - or anyone who simply enjoys life.
