Cover of Patrick Marber: Patrick Marber: Plays (ePUB)

Dealer’s Choice
‘I feel it’s my duty to proclaim it from the rooftops: this is it, this is the play that will remind you, at the end of a year that has contained too few stand-out new-writing hits and far too many musicals, why we go to the theatre – and just how good it can get.’ Telegraph

‘Patrick Marber’s searing follow-up to Dealer’s Choice establishes him as the leading playwright of his generation.’ Independent on Sunday

‘One of the best plays of sexual politics in the language: it is right up there with Williams’s Streetcar, Mamet’s Oleanna, Albee’s Virginia Woolf, Pinter’s Old Times and Hare’s Skylight.’ Sunday Times

Howard Katz
‘After Dealer’s Choice (1995), his gripping study of self-destructive gamblers, and Closer (1997), a thrilling account of love, sex and betrayal, this third instalment of his trilogy set in contemporary London tackles the biggest themes of all – life, death, God and the human soul. It’s great to see a contemporary dramatist wrestling with such material.’ Telegraph

Don Juan in Soho
‘One of the foremost dramatic chroniclers of modern British life. Line by line, this is the best written of all Marber’s plays. You want to hang around its phrases (how often does that happen in the theatre?): hardly a minute passes without a satirical swipe, a gutsy joke.’ Observer

The Red Lion
‘Marber, in this riveting new piece, uses the world of non-league, semi-pro football to explore issues of trust and loyalty and the larger division between individual ambition and the collective ethic. If big issues emerge naturally from the action, it is because Marber is writing about a world he knows intimately. Everything feels right.’ Guardian
