Under 30 : plays for a new generation( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The twenty plays presented here in full or in part include insightful looks at the pressure-cooker caste system of American high schools as well as heartbreaking, edgy portrayals of twentysomethings adrift in the city. There are snappy romantic duets, large-cast ensembles, and everything in between, populated by richly dimensional, mold-breaking characters : misfit cheerleaders, nurturing drifters, rich petty thieves - even a rogue SAT tutor. The contributing playwrights span the range of contemporary talent, including award-winning dramatists such as Sam Shepard, Donald Margulies, Warren Leight, and Kenneth Lonergan, hilarious humorists such as David Ives and Douglas Carter Beane, and an impressive array of cutting-edge newer voices."--Jacket

Plays for three( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"PLAYS FOR THREE is a unique anthology of 23 outstanding plays for three actors by an exciting mix of established and emerging playwrights. Everyone's heard that "Two's company, three's a crowd." That may be true on a date, but on stage, three is a magic number. Add a third character to any interaction and the dramatic possibilities increase exponentially: suddenly there's competition, intrigue, shifting allegiances, comic misunderstandings, secrets and lies. Triangles make excellent drama, and three-handers offer the kind of substantial and challenging roles that actors love. Plays for Three offers six full-length and seventeen short plays featuring dramatic trios of every sort.

Short Sicilian novels by Giovanni Verga( Book )

5 editions published between 1984 and 1994 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lawrence's translations of Verga's Sicilian short stories are classics in their genre, perfectly capturing their cunning fusion of artlessness, austere detachment and skilfully engineered spontaneity as well as retaining something of that lofty style for which Verga's Italian contemporaries so admired him. For seekers after the truth at the heart of Sicily's enigma, this is required reading.' The Observer 'The best of these stories (Liberty, The Gentry) have the directness, even a brutality, to match Cormac McCarthy, and Lawrence's translation is exemplary.' Shaun Whiteside in The Times 'In these stories the whole of Sicily of the eighteen-sixties lives before us - poor gentry, priests, rich landowners, farmers, peasants, animals, seasons and scenery; and whether his subjects be the brutal bloodshed of an abortive revolution or the simple human comedy that can even attend deep mourning, Verga never loses his complete artistic mastery of his material. He throws the whole of his pity into the intensity of his art, and with the simplicity only attainable by genius lays bare beneath all the sweat and tears and clamour of day-to-day humanity those mysterious 'mortal things which touch the mind.'
