Book Description

Stein and Young have gathered a sharp, savagely funny, occasionally surreal collection of one-act plays that read like short stories. In David Ivess Degas, Cest Moi, a man escapes from his humdrum life by assuming the persona of the French painter for a day--only to be brought back to earth by the sight of a real-life nude. Marilyn Monroe has a rendezvous with Carl Sandburg in a Washington hotel suite in Lavonne Muellers American Dreamers. A couples once-a-year meeting takes on its annual bizarre twist in Allan Knees St. Valentines Day Massacre. And, in possibly the only epic one-act ever written, William Seebring unleashes the mother of all tabloid manias when a child is born without a heart--and lives--in his 40-character The Original Last Wish Baby.Youll laugh, youll cry, youll finish each one in fewer than 15 minutes--but dont be surprised if some of them linger longer. A collection of twelve short plays from 1995-1996. Includes: "Fitting Rooms" - Susan Cinoman; "Scribe s Paradox, or The Mechanical Rabbit" - Michael Feingold; "Home Section" - Janusz Glowacki; "Degas, C est Moi" - David Ives; "The St. Valentine s Day Massacre" - Allan Knee; "Old Blues" - Jonathan Levy; "Dearborn Heights" - Cassandra Medley; "American Dreamers" - Lavonne Mueller; "When it Comes Early" - John Ford Noonan; "The Original Last Wish Baby" - William Seebring; "The Mystery School" - Paul Selig; "The Sandalwood Box" - Mac Wellman.
