Plays 2: London Calling

This book brings together Ken Duncum's three plays about the intersection of popular overseas music culture with New Zealand society, each of them showing a slice of Kiwi kids seeking an identity and a relationship to the world through different ways of dressing, talking, posing and thinking delivered to them through imported music. Generous personal introductions telling the stories behind the plays, and the stories of putting the plays on and how they were received, make this a lively and accessible cultural history.
