Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The medieval Mysteries are, above all, wonderful stories involving families at work and play, all in relationship to an idea of a God who was not walled up in church to be visited only on Sunday but who was ever-present. Mr. Sahlins has adapted these stories to make their language available to a present-day American audience, preserving the verse in all its alliterative beauty while replacing medieval and regional words. The resulting play is joyous, suspenseful, and satisfying, an unusually engaging drama for all ages.

Synopsis:

College instructors as well as respected artistic directors from San Diego to Washington's Arena Stage, from the A.R.T. and Manchester's Royal Exchange to Grand Rapids, continue to choose our versions for their production and classroom use. It's because Plays for Performance are specially designed for contemporary production and study, and presented with production values uppermost in mind. Dialogue is attuned to contemporary speech and aware of modern sensibilities, allowing for comfortable performance before American audiences. Books are printed in good-sized type with wide margins, lending themselves to easy production use. The series is edited by Nicholas Rudall, former artistic director of the Court Theatre at the University of Chicago, and professor of classics at the University; and Bernard Sahlins, founder and director of The Second City.
