This collection brings together four of Graham's most successful and entertaining plays, each representing a relationship with a theatre with which he has worked and introduced by the author. One of the plays, Sons of York, has never before been published, but earned James Graham a nomination for the Empty Space Mark Marvin Award. A History of Falling Thingsis a gentle love story about a young man and woman forced to confront their fears of the outside world and discover what really matters to their lives. Tory Boyzis a fast-paced, political comedy about prejudice and ambition in Westminster, looking at homosexuality in the British Conservative party, both today and in the past.As Ben, self-employed, skint and emotionally vulnerable, begins to stitch together the patchwork quilt that was the Tax Year 2009/2010, he relives a year that was both hilarious and tragic, all mixed up in one shoe box of receipts. The Manis an affectionate and funny portrait of an individual's year-long experience, pieced together from receipts, shopping and commercial transactions. The Whisky Tasteris a contemporary, subtle and witty exploration of feeling and perception in the modern world of advertising, and about seeing things too clearly in a city that never stands still. Sons of YorkDescribed as 'undoubtedly one of the best new plays of the year' ( British Theatre Guide), Sons of Yorkdepicts three generations of the same family moving in together in Hull as the Winter of Discontent of 1978 builds up.
