"David Edgar, like Balzac, seems to be the secretary for our times" (Guardian)

Our Own People: "A courageous and intelligent discussion of race and industrial relations" (City Limits); Teendreams (written with Susan Todd of Monstrous Regiment theatre company) is about the failed revolutionary dreams of a set of teenagers. Maydays compares the phenomenon of post-war social rebellion from Western and Eastern perspectives; That Summer is an "elegantly tangential treatment of the 1984 miners' strike" (Plays and Players) "Edgar never lets his drama simplify into ideological diagram…This elegant, humane play keeps its emphasis on the…results that can ensue when diverse lives briefly brush against each other." (Independent)
