Simon Gray obituaries

Playwright (and memoirist) Simon Gray died this week, and there are obituaries in all the major newspapers, including The Times, The Telegraph, The Independent and by Lyn Gardner in The Guardian.
Perhaps more than any other modern British playwright, other than his great friend and champion Harold Pinter, Gray was a chronicler of what is unsaid. His plays are full of highly educated, highly literate, professional people who find that words fail them and retreat into irony as a defence.
