Inhaltsangabe: Barker's innate sense of cultural crisis and decay is nowhere
better dramatised than in 'Hard Heart'. Again employing a powerful woman as
his protagonist, the story is a study of invention and betrayal, in which a
city under siege resorts to many stratagems to save itself. Siege is a
metaphor for the sexual as well as the political in Barker's work (as in
the 'Europeans') and the entrapment of his heroine is as much a surrender
to love as the city's fall is a surrender induced by treachery in the
family; the personal and the political.
`There is no such thing as a minor Howard Barker play. He packs
more into the slenderest dramas than most playwrights manage in an epic.'
-- Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
