Trapped in a city on heat, Weldon's boyfriend has been stabbed, an incident witnessed and re-enacted by 2 neighbourhood lesbians, whose own relationship floods the stage in tandem with the main event, with further commentary provided by an outrageous transvestite. The rising heat is accompanied by radio reports of a plane exploding, a bus melting, and all the bridges collapsing: Nagy presents a city in meltdown in which the characters are cast adrift, but bravely trying to reclaim the world and each other
Disappeared by Phyllis Nagy( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First produced at Leicester's Haymarket Studio in 1995, 'Disappeared' is a tense flickering mystery thriller revolving around the unexplained exit of a woman from a Manhattan bar. The conversation between the woman and the peculiar man last seen with her is interwoven with the scenes which follow her disappearance: press conferences appealing for information; police interrogations of the man and his impassive reaction; the grief of the woman's mother. The elliptical structure endows Nagy's play with a rich tension, and the characters' need for escape gives it a final, elusive beauty
