Overview

In the theater community, Theresa is known as a generous artist who has contributed blistering short work for many of the programs mentioned earlier. Theresa has said that short plays should be just as fulfilling, challenging, and complex as longer pieces. The work in this volume clearly demonstrates her belief. For the first time, Theresa's short plays are published as a single collection. It is very exciting that this work is now available to future generations of actors, directors, and theater companies. The collection reveals a mind carefully attuned to the rhythms of our society and a deep understanding of the personal obstacles individuals face. I have no doubt that these plays will become the staple of acting classes across the country. I am also certain that I will hear these pieces in auditions for years to come.

Editorial Reviews

New England Theatre Journal
It is refreshing to read the work of a feisty writer like Rebeck . . . a ferocious wit and sense of rhythm . . . [she] writes with style, purpose and more than a little humor about contemporary American women.
