Drama, comedy, romance, and fun all around! From a comic yet telling refiguring of August Strindberg’s Miss Julie to a man discovering the daughter he never knew, these eleven Plays that Pop! explore the importance of human connections as we struggle to make the most of life. Along the way, you’ll meet poet William Butler Yeats being confronted by his lost past, a woman on edge hiding a terrible secret, an army patrol facing the ultimate confusion of war, a man in airport limbo, and a play that pokes fun at the very notion of plays. And don’t forget the missing Putty Sing! Whether you’re interested in a good read or are looking for wonderful characters to walk your stage, there’s something here for every taste and every theater budget. Jan Henson Dow has won more than 150 national playwriting competitions, awards, and honors, including an NBC New Voices Award, and her plays have received numerous productions, workshops, and staged readings around the country. Her full-length plays have been published by Samuel French and Popular Play Service.
