' ... an almost brilliant first play by Ray Jenkins ... Its full cleverness and the room left for one's own interpretations are realised on reflection some time afterwards. The play consists of conversations during a single evening between three people: a not always truthful boy of twelve, his grandmother, and his acid-tongued mother. A dangerous lack of understanding in the home is arrestingly brought out by what they say to one another and what the boy says into his tape-recorder.... But no more of the plot ... the play is to be repeated. What a comfort they are, these repeats! '
(Sunday Telegraph, August 1962)
DAVID CREASE in conversation
-with J. M. RICHARDS
In spite of the political changes in Brazil the building of the new capital has gone forward. It is now lived in by nearly 100,000 people, and it is fair to ask how the grand conception of a monumental city has stood up to the economic and practical realities.
David Crease is an English architect who worked with Oscar Niemeyer in Brasilia and is now practising there.
