    Title: Blind Giant Is Dancing

    Allen, a social economist, is a man of idealistic and principled origins and a committed worker for the left -- but he has familial poison running in his veins. As his struggle with the leader of his party's dominant right faction drifts helplessly from the political to the personal, Allen becomes increasingly controlled by the cold and unyielding anger passed on to him by his steelworker father. This is distinctive Sewell territory, where individual lives are equally at the mercy of powerful external forces as they are of scarcely understood drives within (3 acts, 10 men, 6 women).

    Title: Blood Wedding

    Lorca'sBlood Weddingis a classic of twentieth-century theatre. The story is based on a newspaper fragment which told of a family vendetta and a bride who ran away with the son of the enemy family. Lorca uses it to investigate the subjects which fascinated him: desire, repression, ritual, and the constraints and commitments of the rural Spanish community in which the play is rooted. Ted Hughes's version stays close in spirit and letter to the original Spanish. With marvellous directness, he fuses Lorca's vision to his own, and the result is a powerful poetic text which captures all the violence and pathos of the play for an English-speaking audience.

    Title: Blue Stockings

    A moving, comical and eye-opening story of four young women fighting for education and self-determination against the larger backdrop of women's suffrage.

    1896. Girton College, Cambridge, the first college in Britain to admit women. The Girton girls study ferociously and match their male peers grade for grade. Yet, when the men graduate, the women leave with nothing but the stigma of being a 'blue stocking' - an unnatural, educated woman. They are denied degrees and go home unqualified and unmarriageable.

    In ?Blue Stockings?, Tess Moffat and her fellow first years are determined to win the right to graduate. But little do they anticipate the hurdles in their way: the distractions of love, the cruelty of the class divide or the strength of the opposition, who will do anything to stop them. The play follows them over one tumultuous academic year, in their fight to change the future of education.

    Title: Bolshoi Confidential: Secrets of the Russian Ballet from the Rule of Thetsars to the Age of Putin

    The story of the Bolshoi, showcasing the glamor, beauty, prestige, and cruelty of life in the spotlight - and of Russia itself. On the night of January 17, 2013, the artistic director of the Bolshoi Theater Ballet, Sergei Filin, was attacked with battery acid by a hooded assailant outside his house. News of the attack and Filin's possible blinding circled the globe. He had known he was a target, he told reporters. High-profile positions at the Bolshoi came with such risks.Everyone has a stake in the settling, if not the solving, of the crime: from the dancers who have been purged from the ranks under suspicion of being involved, to the opaque political and monied interests at war with each other with the Bolshoi caught in the crossfire. Truth being illusive in Russia, the country itself a kind of theatre, the tale is thickly layered. This book cuts through to the core of the crime and the foundations of the buildings-the Bolshoi and the Kremlin-where it all was scripted.Those who survive the current time of troubles will have the power to chart the artistic and financial course of the Bolshoi moving forward, or perhaps back. Whatever happens will always reflect what is happening within politics. The story of the Bolshoi showcases the glamor, beauty, prestige, and cruelty of life in the spotlight-and of Russia itself.

    This dark comedy takes place in a seedy motel room outside Oklahoma City, where Agnes, a drug-addled cocktail waitress, is hiding from her ex-con ex-husband. Her lesbian biker friend R.C. introduces her to Peter, a handsome drifter who might be an AWOL Gulf War veteran. They soon begin a relationship that takes place almost entirely within the increasingly claustrophobic confines of her motel room. Peter begins to rant about the war in Iraq, UFOs, the Oklahoma City bombings, cult suicides, and then secret government experiments on soldiers, of which he believes he is a victim. His delusions infect Agnes and the tension mounts as mysterious strangers appear at their door, past events haunt them at every turn, and they are attacked by real bugs. Tracy Letts's tale of love, paranoia, and government conspiracy is a thought-provoking psycho-thriller that mixes terror and laughter at a fever pitch.

The story of how the small community of Salem is stirred into madness by superstition, paranoia and malice, culminating in a violent climax, is a savage attack on the evils of mindless persecution and the terrifying power of false accusations.
