Code: PSFLN-11436 Author: Simon Gray ISBN/EAN: 573016968
A very English modern play, reeking of real tragedy, real humour and real life.
The Common Pursuit chronicles the erosion of the ambitions of a smug, elitist group of Cambridge frien's. Stuart is editor of a literary magazine and the pursuit of excellence is shown to be economically a bad proposition in this world.
The magazine collapses and the characters' fates vary as the play proceeds. An ironic epilogue returns to the early days in Cambridge with the young people planning their futures.
