    Serge has bought a modern painting for a huge sum of money. Marc hates it and cannot believe that a friend of his could possibly want such a work. Yvan attempts, unsuccessfully, to placate both sides. If your friendship is based on tacit mutual agreement, what happens when one person does something completely different and unexpected? The question is: Are you who you think you are or are you who your friends think you are? Yasmina Reza's dazzling comedy received the Moliere Award for best play, best production and best author and ran for 18 months at the Comedie des Champs-Elysees, Paris, from October 1994. 63p.

    Athol Fugard has journeyed so deep into the psychosis of racism that all national boundaries quickly fall away, that no one is left unimplicated by his vision. Fugard forces readers to face, point-blank, the huma capacity for hate...but we're also left with the exultant hope that we may yet practice 'compassion without stumbling.' A wrenching play....about choice. 60p.

    • Publisher: Noonday Press
    • Published: August 1983
    A taut and fluid drama by one of America's most talented playwrights. Winner of the Dramatists Guild's prestigious Hull-Warriner Award, four tony nominations, the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, and the Pulitzer Prize in 1983. The subjects are suicide, love, and the meaning of life - as huge as they come; but they are treated with the specificity of threading a needle or choosing the right breakfast. Humor and pathos pop up as naturally as wild flowers or fences by the roadside; there is devastating psychological accuracy and nothing seems contrived; and there is that bustle of minutely perceived existential details that reveal a wordsmith at the controls. 89p.

  • 100 Neo-Futurist Plays: From Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind

    By Greg Allen

    This collection of 100 short (very short) plays from The Neo-Futurists’ acclaimed cult hit Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind was originally published by Chicago Plays in 1993. The show presents 30 plays in 60 minutes, its ensemble of writer/performers generating between two and 12 new plays each week, as dictated by a roll of the dice. The material runs the gamut of style, tone, and topic: musical, confession, agit-prop, poetic gesture, physical comedy, puppet theater, audience interrogation, folk song, sex joke, and many more. The plays are funny, moving, challenging, powerful, and occasionally just plain weird. There is no fourth wall in Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind ? the show embraces the ideal that theater is created in the connection between audience and performer. Randomness, dynamism, speed, brevity, and planned obsolescence are celebrated and exploited to engage and refresh all participants. The plays stand as an entertaining document of the show's output, and they are ideal for scene study, auditions, and competitions.
