A founder of the Portable Theatre and the Joint Stock, he became resident dramatist and literary manager of the Royal Court Theatre, London (1967-71), and at the Nottingham Playhouse (1973). Until recently, Hare served as director of the National Theatre, London. In 1982, Hare founded a film company, Greenpoint Films. He has written several screenplays including Plenty (1985), Weatherby (1985), Strapless (1989), and Damage (1992).

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By kalik@ipo.net on November 25, 1997
Format: Paperback
Hare removes the rose-colored glasses many wear about clergy in both their work and life in this provocative drama about a team of urban pastors in London. Far from making clergy war heroes, Hare instead invites the audience to see their human dilemmas and the adequacy/inadequacy of contemporary religion when confronted with the contexts of power, sex, politics, and money.
