The Best American Short Plays 2003-2004( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new volume includes John Guare's Woman at a Threshold, Beckoning; John Ford Noonan's The Raunchy Dame in the Chinese Raincoat; Tina Howe's Water Music; and Joe Pintauro's Ten-Dollar Drinks. The subject matter of this 12-play collection, with half of the plays by women, is up to the minute: In Jules Tasca's The Death of Bliss a young Palestinian wife pleads with her husband not to become a suicide bomber. Melanie Marnich's The Right to Remain was commissioned by Mixed Blood Theatre for its Bill of (W)Rights project, designed to explore the state of the U.S. Constitution's Bill of Rights at the beginning of 2004. Peter Maloney's Leash is set in the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. And for variety's sake, Deborah Brevoort's Blue Moon Over Memphis is a Noh Drama about Elvis Presley. Other plays rounding out the collection include Jordan Harrison's Fit for Feet; Mary Gallagher's Perfect; and Lavonne Mueller's The Wounded Do Not Cry, the latter inspired by the life of Frances Slanger, forgotten heroine of the Normandy invasion."--Publisher's description

2 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"MANDRAGOLA, adapted by Peter Maloney, is filled not only with Machiavelli's rather questionable wisdom, but with a surprising amount of wit ... If comedy seems an unlikely métier for Machiavelli, the action of MANDRAGOLA is of the any-means-to-an-end variety ... These days, when Machiavellian strategy is being taken all too seriously, it's refreshing to laugh at the old boy." -J. Wynn Rousuck, The Sun, Washington, DC "A naughty comedy by that great Italian Renaissance guy, Machiavelli ... performed with great flair and precision ... a very funny, bawdy play ... a farce about lust, both physical and financial ... A hilarious and lively visit to the streets and gutters of 16th century Florence." -Jane Horwitz, WTTG TV, Washington, DC "Machiavelli's realistic and unflattering opinion of human nature, expressed most notably in his classic The Prince, is given full voice here, but to obvious farcical effect." -American Theater "In this Renaissance sex-comedy human greed is the motor which drives the characters to chase each other around and around during a day and a night in old Florence." -Play Source, Theatre Communications Group"--Amazon
