The Bereaved and Mary (Paperback)
This is the first trade volume of the author who has been featured in "Time Out" as one of the top ten playwrights to watch, and who was then called Best Provocative Playwright by the "Village Voice." "The Bereaved" was highly praised in a recent New York premiere, with its portrayal of an American family turned inside out like a sit-com gone wild. "Mary," soon to be produced by the Goodman Theatre in Chicago, brings together a white suburban Beltway family, their black maid, and their young gay son who brings home his college boyfriend, setting off shotguns in surprising directions.
