He has over the years also come into conflict with the leading UK institutional theater world, he is often perceived as unwilling to provide decent artistic working or take on the social-critical renewal he sought, which has led him to publish his work as a theater theorist.

He has also written poetry often incorporates a responsive poetic tone in many of his theater work, and he counted to today's most prominent and international playwrights. The breakthrough came with the play Saved / Saved (1964) for struggling young people without hope for the future of society's social base. It was like many of his early plays premiered at the progressive Royal Court Theatre in London.
