Greene, Graham: The Potting Shed (eBook)

A Play

From the British novelist, this Tony Award-winning drama of family secrets delivers "brilliantly effective . . . enormously provocative . . . theatrical suspense" (New York Post). The Callifer family has assembled in the English country home of Wild Grove where its patriarch-a once-renowned rationalist and man of letters-nears death. Arriving unexpectedly to pay his respects is his son, James, a pariah among the Callifers, who finds a dark veil still drawn over his mysterious childhood. It was decades ago, when James was fourteen, that something happened to him in the garden shed, a black hole in his memories. For everyone else, it's an unforgettable source of unease-and for some, unforgiveable. To discover the truth, James seeks out his ostracized uncle, an alcoholic priest with nothing left to lose. What unfolds makes for "some of the most moving, forceful and compelling theatre since Eugene O'Neill" (The Harvard Crimson). Graham Greene's Tony Award-winning work for the stage made its Broadway debut in 1957 and was hailed by the New York Times as "an original drama that probes deep into the spirit and casts a spell."

Über den Autor Greene, Graham

Graham Greene (1904-1991) is recognized as one of the most important writers of the twentieth century, achieving both literary acclaim and popular success. His best known works include Brighton Rock, The Heart of the Matter, The Quiet American, and The Power and the Glory. After leaving Oxford, Greene first pursued a career in journalism before dedicating himself full-time to writing with his first big success, Stamboul Train. He became involved in screenwriting and wrote adaptations for the cinema as well as original screenplays, the most successful being The Third Man. Religious, moral, and political themes are at the root of much of his work, and throughout his life he traveled to some of the wildest and most volatile parts of the world, which provided settings for his fiction. Greene was a member of the Order of Merit and a Companion of Honour.
