Left-wing playwright Brenton began writing for the Combination, at Brighton, and The Portable Theatre, a touring company. He is strongly influenced by Bertold Brecht, and has worked with both fringe and mainstream theatre companies since the late 1960s, frequently causing controversy. Recently he has worked at the National Theatre despite his having expressed doubts in the past about such establishment institutions. Important plays include 'Magnificence', (1973); 'Brassneck' (1973), a collaboration with David Hare; 'The Churchill Play' (1974); 'Weapons of Happiness' (1974); 'Epsom Downs' (1977); 'Romans in Britain' (1978); 'The Genius' (1983); 'Bloody Poetry' (1984); 'Pravda' (1985), also a collaboration with David Hare, and 'Greenland' (1988).Brenton, Howard, http://www.artsworld.com/books-film/biographies/a-c/howard-brenton.html, accessed August 14, 2002.
