Neil Tennant claims that he and Chris Lowe called their first album Please because they loved the idea of people asking for it by saying "Have you got the Pet Shop Boys' Please?" Hanif Kureishi's new play, Sleep With Me, has similar conversational possibilities. Before My Beautiful Laundrette, Kureishi (right) wrote plays, often directed by Max Stafford- Clark, who wound up as the basis of a character in The Buddha of Suburbia. For Kureishi's first play for years, the director is Anthony Page. Maybe he'll turn up on one of Kureishi's future pages.
