Editorial Reviews

Jack Helbig
The plays of Wendy Wasserstein, Beth Henley, Suzi-Lori Parks, Tina Howe, Marsha Norman, and more female playwrights receive regular, national coverage, but as the annual Women Playwrights well illustrates, there are more talented women in the American theater than those objects of New York Times attention. The relative obscurity of the playwrights included is, of course, a strength of the series' practice of casting the net wide to include not only playwrights with growing reputations but others who are still rarely produced in New York or trying to get a toehold there. A real find is the pair of quirky, funny, intellige nt one acts in the 2001 edition, Strangers and Romance, by a young Chicago-based playwright simply named Lhota, who, like the other dramatists represented, contributes a short introductory essay to her work.

    Wonderful material

    I'm always thrilled to see fine material by women playwrights, and this book does not disappoint. I was particularly impressed with a little set of jewels called 'Strangers' and 'Romance,' by Barbara Lhota. All of these pieces are very rich additions to any theatre library.
