"The collection opens with the now classic 'Moonchildren, ' described by Walter Kerr as 'the definitive play' about the young people of the '60s, a generation that no longer believes in traditional values but has not yet found values of its own. 'Fishing, ' a sort of unofficial sequel to 'Moonchildren, ' takes another look at these young people at a transitional point in their lives--over thirty--as they are trying to learn to trust each other and themselves. 'At Home' and 'Abroad, ' two linked one-act plays, delve into the breakup of a marriage and its afternath. 'Loose Ends, ' a play about the 'moonchildren' grown up, deals with two lovers' discovery, after a decade, that love is not enough."--Cover, [p. 4]

Tira tells everything there is to know about herself ; and, the bodybuilders : two plays by Michael Weller( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

THE BODYBUILDERS. While Keith plods on with his novel, his wife, Kate, methodically denigrates his output with her bitchy comments. But Keith is fully her match in nastiness, much to the consternation of the two bare-chested young musclemen, Powie and Flash, who suddenly pop in to introduce themselves and are caught in the crossfire. But the confrontation of their purely physical and oddly innocent presence with the jaded, cerebral psyches of the two antagonists produces an unexpected detente -- which will last, no doubt, only so long as it takes to devise another lacerating masochistic routine to succeed it
