Overview

This anthology contains the following complete plays: THE TELLING TRILOGY by Crystal Skillman
A gripping and often chilling full length play that explores the nature of loss, comprising three linked tales of the supernatural. WHAT HAPPENED WHEN by Daniel Talbott Two young men, brothers who have recently been separated, reunite of a night of reminiscence and truth telling. ANTARCTICA by Carolyn Raship
In this sometimes surreal fantasia of growing up, Magda and Winnie set out to become the first American Girls to make an expedition to the South Pole. CLEANSED by Thomas Bradshaw An envelope-pushing drama about a biracial teenage girl who joins a white supremacist group. LINNEA by John Regis A young writer who is obsessed by Dostoyevsky lives out his own NYC dream version of The Idiot in this remarkable coming-of-age tale. . . .

MARVELOUS SHRINE by Leslie Bramm 17-year-old Marvelous isn't sure if he's gay, but he knows he wants to play music. His parents battle over his destiny, and nobody wins in this moving drama. IN OUR NAME by Elena Hartwell A triptych of short, breathtaking one-acts about the ways that the War in Iraq has hit home, especially among American women. UNIVERSAL ROBOTS by Mac Rogers A riveting sci-fi cautionary tale inspired by the lives and works of Czech writer/activists Karel & Josef Capek, especially the play R.U.R. which gave us the word "robot."
