The photograph of Joan Ure below is taken from the book Five Short Plays
On the back
cover are the following comments from Christopher Small who selected the plays for publication
'When Joan Ure died in 1978, at the height of her powers, the loss to
Scottish writing, was immeasurable. The loss in this case was especially poignant, since she was just beginning to receive
some of the recognition long overdue to her talents.The
five plays here are no more than a sample but they represent her brilliant individuality, her theatrical skill and imagination,
and the themes that recur throughout'
