Summary
"This new volume includes John Guare's Woman at a Threshold, Beckoning; John Ford Noonan's The Raunchy Dame in the Chinese Raincoat; Tina Howe's Water Music, and Joe Pintauro's Ten-Dollar Drinks." "The subject matter of this 12-play collection, with half of the plays written by women, is up to the minute: In Jules Tasca's The Death of Bliss a young Palestinian wife pleads with her husband not to become a suicide bomber. Melanie Marnich's The Right to Remain was commissioned by the Mixed Blood Theatre for its Bill of (W)Rights project, designed to explore the state of the U.S. Constitution's Bill of Rights. Peter Maloney's Leash is set in the notorious Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. And for variety's sake, Deborah Brevoort's Blue Moon Over Memphis is a Noh Drama about Elvis Presley." "Other plays in the collection include Jordan Harrison's Fit for Feet; Mary Gallagher's Perfect; Lavonne Mueller's The Wounded Do Not Cry; and Susan Miller's The Grand Design." --Book Jacket
