While they are regularly performed in Nordic and European countries and have been translated into several languages, English-language readers were deprived of his major works until 2013, when Chaucer Press Books published Two Plays: And Give Us the Shadows and Autumn and Winter, followed by Three Plays: Demons, Act, and Terminal 3 (2014).

This volume presents two more of Norens major plays in English, including:- Blood (1994), about a wife and husband tormented over their missing son and the husbands male lover, who are eventually brought together in a heartrending denouement as the unbearable truth of their lives is revealed- and- War (2005), a raw depiction of a family reduced to mere survival, set in an unnamed war-torn country. Their world explodes when the mother and her daughters must confront the unexpected return of her husband--who was presumed to be killed in action--and is now blind and virtually devoid of any humanity.Praise for Lars NorenLars Noren, regarded by many as the greatest Swedish playwright since Strindberg, has dealt with the love-hate relationships of modern dysfunctional families in emotionally powerful and sombre plays spiced with absurd humour.
