In 1981 Hanif Kureishi was voted Most Promising Playwright of the Year by the London Theatre Critics for his plays Borderline and Outskirts. Since then he has gone on to write best-selling fiction (The Buddha of Suburbia, Intimacy) and acclaimed screenplays (My Beautiful Laundrette, which received an Oscar nomination for Best Screenplay, and Sammy and Rosie Get Laid).

This selection of his original works shows his development as a writer, finding his own subject and establishing his characteristically powerful and humorous style. In his extended and witty introduction, Kureishi looks at his work in the theatre at that time, while assessing the significance of radical British theatre during the 1970s.
