Piese de Paula Vogel

A Civil War Christmas
A description of American lives in transition in the fraught winter of 1864. It’s a particularly chilly Christmas Eve in Washington, and the chill does not derive only from the quickly descending temperature. President Abraham Lincoln (Bob Stillman) has recently won re-election, and preparations are under way for his second inauguration. But the country is still riven by war, and troops on both sides are hunkered down for a frigid night with little hope of lasting peace ahead.
Și copilul a împlinește șapte ani (And Baby Makes Seven)
Anna, Ruth and Peter await the arrival of their new-born child; but first they must rid the crowded apartment of their three imaginary children
Apple-Brown Betty
Baltimore Waltz, The
When Anna, an unmarried schoolteacher, is diagnosed with ATD, Acquired Toilet Disease, a fatal new malady with a high risk factor for elementary school teachers, she and her brother Carl take flight to Europe. Anna decides she wants to drown herself in the sensuality of food and sex, while Carl becomes involved in a wild Third Mannish espionage scheme to find a cure for his sister on the Continent. Something is not quite right with the scenario, and the largest hint is dropped when Anna shows slides of their trip to Europe where each frame looks exactly like Baltimore. Carl's quest for a cure dead ends with a mad Viennese quack. Their European idyll is broken by Carl's death, and the tragic revelation that the entire play was Anna's valiant fantasy to keep alive her brother's spirit when she could not save his life.
Bertha în albastru (Bertha in Blue)
An elderly Russian Jew from the Catskills returns for the first time in over fifty years to the New York City of his youth. He visits the spot of a once flourishing Yiddish theater which has long since been converted into a porno movie house. Confused, he mistakes the blue movie actress for the famous actress, Bertha Kalish, and attempts to save her from a life of white slavery.
Desdemona, A Play About A Handkerchief
Having slept with Othello's entire encampment, Desdemona revels in her bawdy tales of conquest. Her foils and rapt listeners are the other integral and re-imagined women of this Shakespeare tragedy: Emilia, Desdemona's servant and the wife of Iago, and Bianca, now a majestic whore of Cyprus. The reluctantly loyal Emilia pesters Desdemona about a military promotion for her husband. Her motive, however, is that he leave her a wealthy widow, preferably sooner than later. Bianca, now a street-wise, yet painfully naive prostitute, visits Desdemona thinking she is a very good friend and fellow hooker (at least one night a week). Bianca thinks the worst when she soon discovers that Desdemona knows intimate details of the life of her lover, Cassio. Though Desdemona has never been intimate with Cassio, her life is soon in danger when her husband, Othello, also suspects her of infidelity.
Hot 'n' Throbbing
Take Charlene, a suburban mother who writes erotic screenplays for women in order to support her children; add Clyde, her funny, dangerously obsessive and estranged husband; toss in hormonally overcharged teenagers; and layer it all with a screenplay on a deadline that Charlene desperately tries to writeand you end up with HOT 'N' THROBBING, a gripping new play written by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of How I Learned To Drive.
Cum am învățat să conduc (How I Learned To Drive)
A wildly funny, surprising and devastating tale of survival as seen through the lens of a troubling relationship between a young girl and an older man. HOW I LEARNED TO DRIVE is the story of a woman who learns the rules of the road and life from behind the wheel.
Indecent
It recounts the controversy surrounding the play God of Vengeance by Sholem Asch, which was produced on Broadway in 1923, for which the cast of the original production was arrested on the grounds of obscenity.
Last Pat Epstein Show Before the Reruns, The
Long Christmas Ride Home, Th
Past, present and future collide on a snowy Christmas Eve for a troubled family of five. Humorous and heart-wrenching, this beautifully written play by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of How I Learned to Drive proves that magic can be found in the simplest breaths of life
Meg
Based on the life of Margaret More Roper, the political and ruthless male hierarchies of Henry VIII and the Church are offstage forces imprisoning Meg, a unique woman isolated from her time and environment through the gift and curse of her developed intellect. MEG intertwines several themes and levels: It is the story of Sir Thomas More seen through his daughter's eyes, it's about a young wife and mother - and it's also an exploration of the father-daughter relationship painfully becoming a man-woman one - as Meg discovers "both diminish in size." It's not a history play - rather a play about history - and the ignored role women have played in history.
Gemenii din Mineola (Mineola Twins, The)
A comedy in six scenes, four dreams and seven wigs. There are two ways to produce this play: 1) with good wigs; or 2) with bad wigs. The second way is preferred. Myrna and Myra, almost identical twins, battle each other through the Eisenhower, Nixon and Reagan/Bush years over virginity, Vietnam and Family Values.
Profesiunea cea mai veche (Oldest Profession, The)
About ageing, Reaganomics and the oldest profession as three friends reminisce on a park bench prostitutes.
Cântecul de lebădă al lui Sir Henry (Swan Song of Sir Henry)
The Oldest Profession
