Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

InJohn Guare's classic play The House of Blue Leaves (winner of the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for best play), the Pope is visiting New York, and eighteen-year-old Ronnie goes AWOL from the army to come home to New York and blow up the Pope as he passes his house. In his new play, Chaucer in Rome, it is the year 2000, and Ron and his wife come to Rome to search for their son. And with his inimitable wit and understanding, Guare has written a scathingly funny satire on the warping hunger for fame, and the betrayal involved in creating art.
