There is a review in the London "Independent" today of a new play by
David Edgar at The Other Place, Stratford-upon-Avon, called "The
Prisoner's Dilemma".

"In the text ... David Edgar acknowledges a number of books that he
found useful on the subjects of peace negotiation, treaty-making and
game theory. Unfortunately, there are many times in the course of this
long, involved evening when the piece itself feels more like an academic
manula of conflict recolution techniques than a fully fleshed-out human
drama..."
"the actors ... are unable to dissuade you from the view that 'The
Prisoner's Dilemma' is a clever-clever bloodless drama penned by a
boffin"

The review is by Paul Taylor.

Amazon.co.uk report that the text is "not yet published", due 12th July.
