Overview

Free from the restraints of the structure, convention, and assumptions of realistic drama, these works show us characters with complex proven identities.

The works and story line is what the playwright wishes to convey on the audience as a whole by helping to cause the audience or reader to be moved with thought provoking means to stir the mind to think about this side of life.
