Has God Not Chosen the Poor?: The Social Setting of the Epistle of James
The significance of the Epistle of James within early Christianity, when not neglected, has been disputed. In recent years the letter, and its author, have received renewed attention, and this contribution to the revival examines the way in which the author and his addressees are depicted within the social world of emerging Christianity. Edgar finds strong points of contact with the sayings of Jesus and with early Christian itinerant proclaimers, who are often seen as having been active in preserving and transmitting these sayings. The Epistle challenges the shaky commitment of its readers to their new allegiance, and, in the light of the coming of Gods eschatological ruoe, employs the model of patronage to lay out the choice between loyalty to God and identification with the earthly value system dominated by the rich.

This volume contains the best of David Edgar's work from the seventies The Jail Diary of Albie Sachs is an adaptation of the famous South African writer's diaries and deals with solitary confinement and loneliness - a remarkable, persuasive picture. (Observer); Mary Barnes is based in a commune in the sixties and focuses on schizophrenia promulgating the theory that schizophrenia can be effectively treated through behaviourist methods alone ; Saigon Rose tackles venereal disease and is intriguing and entertaining...Edgar handles his themes - loss of innocence and a sense of betrayal - in a bitty, playful style laced with black comedy (Independent); Oh Fair Jerusalem deals with the black death and Destiny deals with the loss of Empire and the rise of fascism in contemporary Britain A play which astonished me with its intelligence, density, sympathy and finely controlled anger.

Continental Divide: Daughters of the Revolution/ Mothers Against
Edgar's main theme is how precisely the US got where it is today . . . in the big, bold Daughters of the Revolution, he uses a political thriller to show how the 1960's radical baby-boomers turned into today's conformists. Its companion piece, Mothers Against, dealing with the Republican side, is a total triumph. The action takes place before a crucial televised debate. Together, the two plays are a tremendous achievement. --Michael Billington, Guardian

How Plays Work
Distinguished playwright David Edgar examines the mechanisms and techniques which dramatists throughout the ages have employed to structure their plays and to express their meaning. Written for playwrights and playgoers alike, Edgar's analysis starts with the building blocks of whole plays - plot, character creation, genre and structure - and moves on to scenes and devices. He shows how plays share a common architecture without which the uniqueness of their authors' vision would be invisible. What does King Lear have in common with Cinderella? What does Jaws owe to Ibsen? From Aeschylus to Alan Ayckbourn, from Chekhov to Caryl Churchill, are there common principles by which all plays work? How Plays Work is a masterclass for playwrights and playmakers and a fascinating guide to the anatomy of drama.

Playing with Fire
National Theatre premiere for mighty new 'State of the Nation' play from our most prominent political playwright David Edgar's breakthrough play, Destiny (1976), looked at the rise of racism and the National Front - and wondered about the future shape of a multicultural society in Britain. Now, thirty years on, Edgar looks at the realities of our multiracial nation in a brilliantly layered new play. Playing with Fire is set in a fictional, but instantly recognisable northern town, Wyverdale, not a million miles away from Burnley or Oldham. The Labour-led Town Council is a shambles, presiding over schools with 'the lowest GCSE pass rates in the country', wards amongst the 'poorest ten per cent in the UK' and the 'worst council tax collection rate'. The Councillors are fundamentally out of touch with their citizens, who are mostly unemployed, badly housed - and non-white. With a cast of 42 and an epic sweep typical of Edgar at his best, Playing with Fire charts the arrival in the town of an ambitious civil servant, sent up from Whitehall to sort things out - and watches as she discovers the near-insoluble complexity of a local government riven by antagonisms and crippled by lack of cash. What emerges is a sobering and provocative portrait of the near-ungovernability of whole tracts of urban Britain today. Playing with Fire marks David Edgar's debut on one of the largest of the National Theatre's stages - the 1100-seat Olivier. Details have yet to be announced, but a major theatrical event is in the making.
