Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Writing on the play "Sea of Cortez" in El-e-phant, Sun & Moon publisher Douglas Messerli noted of Steppling's work: "In Steppling's world people are what they are, doomed to suffer their own predetermined destinies. There is no hidden money; no escape from the forces that be - natural or man-made. Guilt is inexpiable. In each scene the characters must begin all over again, the effect of which is to point up Steppling's underlying Romantic sensibility. For even while the figures of his plays have no actual hope of communication, they forever remain on the verge of possibility. Face to face the figures almost scream out not only for communication, but for a simple caress, even a touch; but the dark surrounding silence serves as a kind of coitus interruptus, and the character are forced to sink back into their determined alienation. Desire is all they are left".

Synopsis:

The first collection of plays from the playwright of the acclaimed Dream Coast. Contains Sea of Cortez, Standard of the Breed, The Shaper and My Crummy Job.
