"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

TIRA TELLS EVERYTHING THERE IS TO KNOW ABOUT HERSELF. At the outset Tira awaits the arrival of her lover, Edward, who, she admits, bores her. When he goes off to retrieve the present he forgot to bring her, she is visited, in turn, by four other and quite dissimilar possible lovers -- all played by the single male actor in the play. There is Poof, the lisping faggot; Lucio, the uncertain Latin gigolo; Brute, the belching lout; and, finally, the sensitive, withdrawn Tib. In their encounters Tira acquires qualities complementary to each, but all ultimately disappoint, and Tira, having found that all there is to know about herself is nothing, turns to suicide as the inevitable alternative
