Collected for the first time in print, over a decade of texts from one of British theatre's most fiercely individual voices, documenting the extraordinary site-specific solo performances which have run parallel to Bartlett's acclaimed work as a mainstream director.
Beginning with a series of furious responses to the early days of the British AIDS crisis, including a previously unpublished reconstruction of Bartlett's notorious signature 1987 performance A Vision of Love Revealed in Sleep, the nine monologues collected here provide an intimate insight into the development of a powerful and highly personal theatrical vision.
