Publisher Comments:

The annual anthology of original one-act plays from New York's premiere developmental theater--now a Faber paperback original

The One-Act Plays:

Deaf Day by Leslie Ayvazian

Up, Down, Strange, Charmed, Beauty, and Truth by Edward Allan Baker

War by Bill Bozzone

The Once Attractive Woman by Christine Farrell

The Golf Ball by Frank D. Gilroy

Dreamtime for Alice by Susan Kim

Goodbye, Oscar by Romulus Linney

Maiden Lane by Cassandra Medley

In the Western Garden by Stuart Spencer

All About Al by Cherie Vegelstein

The "I" Word: Interns by Michael Louis Wells

The Ensemble Studio Theatre is best known for its Marathon of One-Act Plays, in which, over a period of six weeks, twelve plays receive their New York premieres. Included in the '99 anthology are Romulus Linney's Goodbye Oscar, wherein Oscar Wilde, exiled in Paris, gravely ill, and fighting a losing battle with his wallpaper, meets Jesus Christ in a fifth-rate café; Stuart Spencer's In the Western Garden, set on the east end of Long Island where a once-great abstract artist grapples with the gradual loss of his mind while his art dealer scrambles to possess his rumored final masterpieces; and Susan Kim's Dreamtime for Alice, in which Alice, accidentally left behind by her tour bus in the Australian outback, examines the stark realities of her life in a neurotic, hilarious, and revealing monologue that rivals Woody Allen and Spalding Gray at their best.

With work that ranges from the deeply affecting to the sublimely funny by both established and up-and-coming playwrights, this anthology is a must for anyone interested in what's happening in theater on a grassroots level.

About the Author

The Ensemble Studio Theatre is a not-for-profit developmental theater established in 1969 with two primary goals: to nurture individual theater artists and to develop new American plays. Curt Dempster is the founder and artistic director.
