Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Today's most exciting work for the stage is emerging far from Broadway's "mainstream," at Off and Off-off Broadway theaters, at regional companies around the country, and from abroad.  Here is an up-to-the-minute collection of scenes—ideally suited for both classroom and audition use—from the best dramatists now being produced.

Synopsis:

David Mamet, Beth Henley, and August Wilson are just some of the contemporary dramatists whose work is featured in this book, the first anthology of two-character scenes that exclusively includes plays from the mid-sixties to plays currently running on and off Broadway.
