“[A] gloriously rich, mind-expanding three-hour play, which explores the complex relationship between China and America.” —Guardian on Chimerica

Kirkwood’s plays are infused with a sharp wit and a fierce intelligence, taking an unflinching look at the issues affecting our world today. This collection gathers together five of Kirkwood’s plays, including Chimerica, Tinderbox, it felt empty when the heart went at first but it is alright now, small hours, and NSFW.
