Abstract:

This first collection of Wallace Shawn's plays from the seventies and eighties brings together A Thought in Three Parts, Marie and Bruce, Aunt Dan and Lemon, and The Fever - four incisive and provocative works that have disturbed theatergoers on both sides of the Atlantic. Shawn's themes include sex, historical guilt, the conflict between high and low culture, and the effort to define the self, all described in a remarkable, attentive language. Brilliant and biting, his plays are sometimes horrifying, sometimes hilarious, but never, ever dull.
