    Editors’ Choice —The Drama Review Plínio Marcos’ Two Lost in the Filthy Night shows language as the only possesion of two paupers living in claustrophobic conditions. The rapid and vigorous dialogue lashes out, enclosing the reader in a brutal game. Leilah Assumpção, in Moist Lips, Quiet Passion, dramatizes the sexual life of a couple trying to achieve their Big Orgasm. They remember their frustrating games by the dates of the military coups. Existence is possible only through games. In Walking Papers by Consuelo de Castro, a man and a woman interact in fragmented situations bordering on insanity. There is no reference to socio-political events, but the obssessive language and the exacerbating rituals of the claustrophobic relationship projects the shadow of the repressive system. Miriam Balboa Echeverria Department of Spanish Texas State University 3 Contemporary Brazilian Plays gives us translations of major works in the development of drama from the 1960’s to the 1980’s. Anyone interested in the dramatization of social and existential themes in Latin America should read these plays. K. D. Jackson Department of Portuguese, Yale University Plinio Marcos, who spews out a souped-up, blasphemous Lower Depths atmosphere, creates an unmistakable authenticity that only an intimate familiarity with Skid Row could certify. Leilah Assumpção and Consuelo De Castro write latter-day Marx Brothers-spun Theatre of Cruelty sending the reader into a heady tailspin of depraved sexual gamesmanship. All three scabrous, savory works in this volume are two-character plays that are eminently stageable.David Paul Willinger Department of Theatre and Speech City College and the Graduate Center, CUNY Here we have three of Brazil’s most dexterous and resourceful theater craftsmen. Each is gravely concerned with the human condition, and each has the capacity to illuminate that condition in a sensitive and compelling manner. The translations are effective, the themes are of our time and place and the volume is most worthy for reader and producer alike.Gordon Peacock Frank C.

    Krasner (theatre, Yale U.) chronologically evaluates the dominant themes of American drama in the second half of the 20th century and, to a lesser extent, explores the innovations of dramaturgical strategy pioneered by American playwrights in the period. His conceptual framework looks in turn at plays in which characters desire to belong to the mainstream (1945-1959), dramas that rebel against mainstream norms (1960-1975), plays with characters who rage (1976-1989), and plays that emphasize the body (1990-2000).
