More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Martin's plays light up the stage with their heady mixture of savage humor and mayhem, as she probes the often dark side of American politics and culture and takes a sharp look at the interpersonal relationships of her characters. Martin has won several awards, including the American Theatre Critics Association New Play Award in 1994 for her full-length work Keely and Du. The ten plays in this collection include "Middle-Aged White Guys," a satire on the lost American dream set in a garbage dump and featuring a visit by an angelic Elvis. "Mr. Bundy" is a shocking examination of the dangers of self-righteous retribution, while "Flaming Guns of the Purple Sage" is a hilarious, Grand Guignol takeoff of B Westerns and slasher movies. This work makes a nice addition to Martin's other collections, Vital Signs and What Mama Don't Know. Recommended for contemporary theater arts collections in public and academic libraries.
