Most widely held works by Geoff Shields
Temptation ( visu )
1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"In Czech playwright and president Vaclav Havel's Faust play, Havel hurls his little Faustian figure, scientist Henry Foustka, into a battle of will and spirit against the Institute that employs him. What follows when black magic meets bureaucracy is a bawdy exploration of good and evil, lust and love- and who owns (and disseminates) what in the marketplace of knowledge belief, and correct thinking."--Program notes by Eugenie Chan
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
A view from the bridge ( visu )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"The play concerns the New York longshoreman Eddie Carbone. He and his wife, Beatrice, have raised her niece, Catherine, but Eddie finds himself increasingly attracted to the young woman. Further problems arise when Beatrice's two Sicilian brothers, both illegal immigrants, arrive on the scene and one of them, Marco, wins Catherine's love. Jealous and fearful of losing her, Eddie informs immigration officers about the brothers. The play ends with a fight in which Marco kills Eddie."--Brewer's Theatre, 1994
Prelude to a kiss by Norman René( visu )
1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"A stranger shows up at Peter and Rita's wedding, and, after circulating among the guests, asks to kiss the bride. When he does ... the sick old man trades places, psychically speaking, with the young woman."--A review by Steven Winn, San Francisco Chronicle, 11/18/88
