Effie's Burning, Paperback

Effie's Burning Paperback

Part of the Acting Edition S. series


Effie, who has lived in mental institutions since the age of thirteen, has been admitted to hospital with severe burns.

Treating her is Dr Ruth Kovacs, who finds in Effie's extraordinary story of injustice and official callousness the key to her own suppressed anger and power.

Taut and powerful, tender and often funny, Effie's Burning is an emotional switchback of a play, with a searing anger at its heart.
