Review

Racing Demon emerges as Hare's compassionate study of the eternal battle between the individual conscience and the institution.” ―Guardian

About the Author

David Hare was born in Sussex, England in 1947. His first play, Slag, was produced in 1970. His other works include Plenty (1978), A Map of the World (1983), and Pravda (1985). 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). Several of his best-known plays, The Secret Rapture, Racing Demon, Skylight, The Judas Kiss, Via Dolorosa and Amy's View have been presented on Broadway.

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.
