Overview

“Paul Rudnick is a champion of truth (and love and great wicked humor) whom we ignore at our peril.” —David Sedaris, author of Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, and Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk

This definitive collection of Paul Rudnick’s plays presents the pinnacle of theatrical hilarity from one of America’s great humorists. Popular for his wickedly funny novels, including I’ll Take It and Social Disease, comic screenplays like In & Out and Addams Family Values, and the Augusten Burroughs-like memoir I Shudder, Rudnick remains best known for his cerebral but side-splitting theatrical writing. With echoes of Neil Simon, Thornton Wilder, and Noel Coward, Rudnick plays like I Hate Hamlet, Jeffrey, and The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told are outstanding fixtures of America’s comedic canon.
