Manifesto Series V.2


Manifesto Series V.2: Vivid Impact (Or: How Six Deeply Engaged Playwrights Struck An Arrow In The Cold Heart of Ironic Detachment)
Rain City Projects has long supported North West playwrights. This collection of plays includes:

Texarkana Waltz by Louis Broome
Burning Bridget Cleary by Allison Gregory
The Secret Recording of Lenin to his Lost Love Mary Ann of Topka, Kansas by Brendan Healy
The K of D by Laura Schellhardt
Crumbs Are Also Bread by Stephanie Timm

"These are narratives that, however much they may fracture time and place, do not seek to fracture us. Instead, they attempt - with brazen audacity - to fit something in us back together." "Texarkana Waltz is that rare theatrical treasure which brings its fiercely funny myths to life - and then trumps them with the greater myth of its own incomparable originality." Steven Dietz, Editor. Available at Amazon.com.
