"Scullery, clochard Céleste, est le guide éthylique d'une odyssée nocture le long d'une rue lépreuse du vieux Lancashire. Il nous trimballe de la chambre à la cuisine, du salon aux pavés de la rue, dans un monde de sexe et d'alcool où jeunes, moins jeunes, vieux, clochards, chômeurs, prostituées, skins et laissés pour compte se heurtent et se côtoient, sans jamais s'apitoyer sur leur sort. Road aborde de front notre époque avec un humour féroce et caustique, une impertinence corrosive, une vraie violence sociale. On passe du réalisme sordide à la poésie baroque

Aunt Dan and Lemon : a play by Wallace Shawn( Book )
4 editions published between 1985 and 2009 in English and held by 87 libraries worldwide
Aunt Dan & Lemon takes us into the world of a young recluse named Lemon (alias Leonora) who spends her nights reading chronicles of Nazi atrocities. Lemon tells the audience about the overwhelming influence in her life of her parents' friend "Aunt Dan," an eccentric, passionate professor whose stories and seductive opinions enthrall Lemon from the time she is a young girl. The relationship that develops between Lemon and Aunt Dan and the conversations that went on in a small house on the bottom of an English garden form the focus of this play about political orientation and the allure of certain ideas-even if they lead to murder. A forceful play exposing the banality of society's evil, Aunt Dan & Lemon explores the ease with which good and bad become reconciled in the human mind
