The stick wife ( visu )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"'The Stick Wife' is set entirely in the dirt backyard of Jessie. Here she and her husband Ed parcel out thier marriage in transactions of food and washing conducted in monosyllables. They never speak the words 'Ku Klux Klan'; instead, from the play's beginning--in which Jessie beseeches Ed to tell her where he's going early on morning- the dialogue is pregnant with ominous subtexts."--A review by Scott Rosenberg, San Francisco Examiner, March 13, 1989

"The virgin Molly portrays the trials and tribulations of Private Molly Peterson, a green recruit who finds himself locked up in the sexual orientation unit of a Marine Corps barracks. The site, known as 'the queerhouse', becomes the scene of a bizarre inquest into the nature of Private Molly's alleged transgression." from a company press release
Reckless ( visu )

"At home on Christmas Eve, Rachel is informed by her guilty husband that he has hired a hit man to kill her, and she must flee for her life- which she does by scrambling out the kitchen window and into the snowy night. She meets and joins up with Lloyd Bophtelophti, a true "original" who has changed his name to avoid alimony payments and who now lives with a paraplegic named Pootie (who also pretends to be deaf to get double disability). Rachel then wins $100,000 on a TV game show and begins a series of picaresque escapades involving numerous psychiatrists and, eventually, an ill-fated reunion with her own child (who fails to recognise her), and is led more and more to ponder whether the modern world might not be a vast conspiracy designed to systematically undermine her own increasingly shaky sanity."-- (Dramatists Play Service catalog 95/96)

In perpetuity throughout the universe ( visu )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"The world of 'In Perpetuity' is noctural Manhatten ... Here ... exists a sub rosa publishing house, a vanity press for cults with names like Snowstorm and Aryan Universe. It's owned by the mysterious Ampersand Qwerty, author of 'Zog.' a polemic about 'the Zionist Occupation Government of the United States'. Not content with the modest sales of 'ZOG', Qwerty has gathered material for a new book about Asian economic infiltration of America. A ghostwriter is assigned to turn his notes and statistics, wire-tap transcripts and smutty photos of miscegenation nito a suitable book."--A review by Juidth Green in the San Jose Mercury News, 2/8/89
Serious money ( visu )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"'Serious money' is a social chroicle of the changes wrought in the London financial world by the Thatcherite revolution, a 'Big Bang' of deregulation that opened the doors to a hungry and street-wise new class of traders. It's also amurder mystery: Jake Todd, a back channel for insider tips, is found dead, and his sister, futures trader Schilla Todd, hunts down his rich connections in search of clues. The play's a war story, too: Scilla's quest leads her into the corssfire of a takeover assault that raider Bily Corman has launched against Albion Products and it's insufficiently profit-gouging CEO, Duckett."--A review by Scott Rosenberg, San Francisco Chronicle, 6/8/89
