About this title

Synopsis:

this collections contains three full-length plays: THE LAST GOOD MOMENT OF LILY BAKER, THE WILD GOOSE CIRCUS, and THE SECOND DEATH OF PRISCILLA

Review:

on THE LAST GOOD MOMENT OF LILY BAKER: ...there is a richness of characterization and scope here that tease, please and surprise, and with a mythic stretch that is, at its best, reminiscent of Edward Albee's WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? --Nancy Churnin, Los Angeles Times

on THE WILD GOOSE CIRCUS: ...in Russell Davis THE WILD GOOSE CIRCUS, these crafty artisans hit fertile pay dirt. ...Within this broken calliope frame, Davis piles a fantastic compost of meaty metaphor and biblical allegory, bears on unicycles and sad French clowns. The rich, layered text gives way to inspired surreal absurdity that isn t merely a self-conscious jab at surrealism and absurdism.... From trapeze to pirate ship to a monster walrus head, the staging is visual poetry, making THE WILD GOOSE CIRCUS all the more strange and beautiful and rare. --Tom Orr, The Seattle Times

on THE SECOND DEATH OF PRISCILLA: THE SECOND DEATH OF PRISCILLA, a look inside the mind of a woman who s losing it, is a play of shifting reality and poetic beauty.... Russell Davis play, [is] a childhood story twisted into a metaphorical fairy tale for grownups.... Priscilla is a woman afraid to leave her room. Her mind is besieged by an obsessive internal voice, depicted as a wolf disguised as a man.... He lurks outside Priscilla s window. He stalks, beguiles and snarls in his effort to keep Priscilla under his control. ...I found myself lost in Priscilla s delusion and moved by her transformation... --Judith Egerton, The Courier-Journal (Louisville)
