Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Actors - these voices will fly off the page into performance. Inspired! Relevant! Now!"

Kamilah Forbes, Artistic Director, Hi-Arts/Hip Hop Theater Festival

These ferocious literary voices inspire me, intimidate me, empower my pen, and smash open my expectations of what a play can be. They provide gifts for actors, in the form of complex characters and throbbing language. I'm thrilled to share the page with them.

Quiara Hudes, Pulitzer Prize Winning Playwright

"Every actor needs something to play. This book on a practical level gives actors of many different backgrounds additional material for going out there and giving it their all."

Anna Deavere Smith, Playwright and Actor
