Books Info:

Poor Relations free pdf "Poor Relations" is an experimental play which explores the relationships between generations. There are three tables, each with chair, in three separate locations in three different decades of the twentieth century, spanning some eighty years. At each table, a character recalls events which have shaped their lives and relationships with other members of the family. All live lonely existences. A young man of around thirty passes between them, linking the action and forming bridges between characters and events. Could things have been different? Or were they the victims of a repressive society?
