I collect plays and anthologies are the best way to find young, exciting talent. This is the best anthology I've read in quite a while with Colette Freedman's Sister Cities topping the list. Rarely does one find drama which includes five dynamic, diverse and complex roles for women. I also thoroughly enjoyed Nick Mwaluko's gender bending He/She... whose subject matter is fascinating. Denton's collection of plays is impressive and I will certainly check out more of these collections.
