Four full-length plays and two previously unpublished shorts from the multi-award-winning author of <i>Jerusalem</i>.

Jez Butterworth burst onto the theatre scene aged twenty-five with <i>Mojo</i>, 'one of the most dazzling Royal Court main stage debuts in years' (<i>Time Out</i>).

This first volume of his Collected Plays contains that play plus the three that followed, as well as two short one-person pieces published here for the first time - everything in fact that precedes <i>Jerusalem</i>, 'unarguably one of the best dramas of the twenty-first century' (<i>Guardian</i>).

Plays One includes: <i>Mojo</i>, <i>The Night Heron</i>, <i>The Winterling</i>, <i>Leavings</i> (previously unpublished), <i>Parlour Song</i> and <i>The Naked Eye</i> (previously unpublished).

Introducing the plays is an interview with Jez Butterworth specially conducted for this volume.

'The verbal menace of Harold Pinter [combined with] the physical violence of Quentin Tarantino' <i>The Times</i> on <i>Mojo</i>

'It's funny, it's sad, it's haunting and it is also strangely beautiful.

Best of all, it is quite unlike anything you have seen before' <i>Telegraph</i> on <i>The Night Heron</i>

'Dazzling' <i>Guardian</i> on <i>The Winterling</i>

'Wickedly funny' <i>Financial Times</i> on <i>Parlour Song</i>
