About the book…
Nominated for the Edwart Biggs Award 2003, Carlo Gebler's 10 Rounds is a remarkable intervention in the political life of contemporary Northern Ireland.
Exploring the treacherous interface between public and private morality, the play provides a riveting portrait of a society which has fully absorbed the politics of violence. This is a world of paramilitaries, prostitutes, government officials and political spokespersons. A world where everyone knows, everyone gossips off-the-record but everyone refuses to act, an interlinking chain of social and political doubletalk and doublethink.
10 Rounds shows the realities of life in the north of Ireland beyond the headlines and political posturing.
