Subtitled ‘Seventeen Scenarios for Theatre’, Attempts on Her Life initially bewildered some critics but is now revered for its innovative use of structural form. Written without assigning dialogue to particular characters and comprising seventeen disconnected scenes, it is left up to the director how the play should take shape. Since its premiere at the Royal Court, Attempts on Her Life has been translated into more than 20 languages. The National Theatre presented its first major UK revival in March 2007.
