Bodybuilders, The
While Keith plods on with his novel, his wife, Kate, methodically denigrates his output with her bitchy comments. But Keith is fully her match in nastiness, much to the consternation of the two bare-chested young musclemen, Powie and Flash, who suddenly pop in to introduce themselves and are caught in the crossfire. But the confrontation of their purely physical and oddly innocent presence with the jaded, cerebral psyches of the two antagonists produces an unexpected detentewhich will last, no doubt, only so long as it takes to devise another lacerating, masochistic routine to succeed it.

Bennett Traube este exponentul de seamă al firmei și încearcă să o salveze, se îndrăgostește de o avocată idealistă care apără cazul social, o seduce și încearcă să o abată de la crezul ei.
Cancer
Cello Days at Dixon's Palace
An artist, a mechanic, and their girl are worried about Dixon, their leader, who is hung up over his latest painting, "The Monster". They are easily introduced - themselves young people, real, who feel truly and do not deceive themselves, essentially moral and trusting enough to expect the same in those around them. These good people are well-acted and convincing; they also come across as very young; something the author did not have in mind. This leads to complications. They key question of the play is whether to trust Marcel, the boarder they picked off the street months ago, who suddenly asks for money so that he can recover his cello. He is finally given the money, though Dixon, now cynical, is loath to do it. As the group awaits his return, not knowing whether their trust was justified, the suspense builds.
Dogbrain
Six-year-old Nicholas gets into hot water when he invents a non-existent creature called Dogbrain to blame for his bad behavior. When Dogbrain materializes (visible only to Nicholas) and wreaks havoc on his family, Nick and his little brother are forced into the night-time streets of the city where they encounter a huge dog, a bag person, and finally, a rescuer, straight out of Nicholas' imaginationthe same imagination that conjured up his dark side as the creature Dogbrain. Thus does Nicholas learn how he has within him bad and good, and the power to keep them under his own control.

When he goes off to retrieve the present he forgot to bring her, she is visited, in turn, by four other and quite dissimilar possible loversall played by the single male actor in the play. There is Poof, the lisping faggot; Lucio, the uncertain Latin gigolo; Brute, the belching lout; and, finally, the sensitive, withdrawn Tib. In their encounters Tira acquires qualities complementary to each, but all ultimately disappoint, and Tira, having found that all there is to know about herself is nothing, turns to suicide as the inevitable alternative.
Twenty-Three Years Later
What the Night is For
Zhivago
Adapting a large, complex novel to the stage is difficult. There is a lot to condense into three hours: revolutions, the demise of the bourgeoisie, World War I, the Civil War, the new regime, not to mention the romantic plot. Michael Weller’s book contains no extraneous scenes or dialogue. Each scene cracks along impressively at lightning speed, deftly directed by McAnuff, nailing the key plot points and relationships in a heightened manner, very much in the style of grand opera.
