If you care about the American theatre - if you are wondering where the next generation of American dramatists is coming from - you will want to read this book. An anthology of eight new plays from New York City's dynamic off-off-Broadway theatre: these plays run the gamut from broad farce to satire to moving comic drama. These plays are ripe for production on stages throughout the United States.

These plays say something cogent and interesting about the way we live now, on the cusp of the new millennium. They redefine the boundaries of the experience of theatre in new and useful ways. The eight plays are all darn good: funny, compelling, and intelligent.

Who will write the next classic American play? Don't be surprised if it's one of these authors, whose works have electrified audiences in New York City throughout 1998 and 1999.

These writers, and their work, are boldly pushing contemporary theatre into the 21st century, helping to shape and define the themes and structures of the next wave of American drama.
