TEN PLAYS is the first published collection of plays by playwright, director and performer Mark Jackson. Jackson's highly theatrical plays defy easy categorization, ranging in form and subject matter from grotesque comedies about contemporary pop culture to epic melodramas about ancient themes of love and war. Jackson's work has been seen on both US coasts, in the UK and Germany. This collection of ten of his plays includes American $uicide, BANG!, Brave, The Death of Meyerhold, Faust Pt1, The Forest War, I Am Hamlet, little extremes, Messenger #1 and R&J, with notes by the author and a Foreword by critic Rob Avila.
