Signs of life : six comedies of menace

A stunning collection of Joan Schenkar's unsettling and unnervingly funny experimental plays (which she refers to as "comedies of menace"), available for the first time. Schenkar's charged language and evocative stage directions invite the reader to become both performer and audience. These plays provide a unique theatrical experience, one that only can be accessed by laughter. 16 illustrations
