Overview

This is the second volume of Plays from New River, showcasing a place where gifted writers of plays and screenplays are paid and nurtured to write whatever they most want to write. These three very different plays are among the results. Mark Eisman's Feasting on Cardigans explores with whimsical humor a pair of dedicated exterminators and the emotional effect they have on those lives they touch. M.Z. Ribalow's Tiger in the Tree is an intriguing thriller that as it proceeds becomes about much more than one might assume at the beginning. James McLure's Baseball Game of the Week is a deceptively moving, always funny meditation on progress, memory and baseball.
