Three delightful one-act plays set in and around New York, in which sophisticated characters confound one another in ways only Woody Allen could imagine Woody Allen’s first dramatic writing published in years, “Riverside Drive,” “Old Saybrook,” and “Central Park West” are humorous, insightful, and unusually readable plays about infidelity. The characters, archetypal New Yorkers all, start out talking innocently enough, but soon the most unexpected things arise—and the reader enjoys every minute of it (though not all the characters do). These plays (successfully produced on the New York stage and in regional theaters on the East Coast) dramatize Allen’s continuing preoccupation with people who rationalize their actions, hide what they’re doing, and inevitably slip into sexual deception—all of it revealed in Allen’s quintessentially pell-mell dialogue. From the Trade Paperback edition.

"Published here for the first time, Six One-Act Plays follows the 2008 collection of Richard Harsham's Twelve Plays in Search of Their Characters that comprised longer works for the stage. Influenced by the dramatic rigors of Samuel Beckett and Harold Pinter--Harsham subscribes to the mea culpa Pinter offered at the time of his Nobel Prize acceptance speech: "I've often been asked how my plays come about. I cannot say. Nor can I ever sum up my plays, except to say: that this is what happened; that is what they said; that is what they did." These one-act plays explore the human condition in cosmopolitan settings, revealing characters who work without benefit of a metaphysical safety-net and who inflict their needy sensibilities upon one another in a fragmentary world of scarce consolations and furtive urges. The sustaining illusion of permanence is subverted by the cosmic reality: human existence, in the grand scheme, proves as fleeting as the crystalline snowflake that, after making its "mark" lodged on winter's window pane, melts away, furry-white sparkle gone into velvety-black void....Harsham catches the irony of the unsolvable human mystery--that, as individuals, we are our own "disappearing acts." Like snowflakes, no two ever alike, ever again.

The peak of my virtuosity was in the one- act plays. Some of which are like firecrackers on a rope. Tennessee Williams Tennessee Williams's lesser-known one-act plays reveal a tantalising and fascinating perspective to one of the world's most important playwrights. Written between 1934 and 1980, the plays of the very young writer, then of the successful Tennessee Williams, and finally of the troubled man of the 1970s, this volume offers a panoramic yet detailed view of the themes, demons, and wit of this iconic playwright. The volume depicts American life during the Great Depression and after, populated by a hopelessly hopeful chorus girl, a munitions manufacturer ensnared in a love triangle, a rural family that deals "justice" on its children, an overconfident mob dandy, a poor couple who quarrel to vanquish despair, a young "spinster" enthralled by the impulse of rebellion, and, in The Magic Tower, a passionate artist and his wife whose youth and optimism are not enough to protect their 'dream marriage.' This collection gathers some of Williams's most exuberant early work and includes one-acts that he would later expand to powerful full-length dramas: 'The Pretty Trap,' a cheerful take on The Glass Menagerie, and 'Interior: Panic,' a precursor to A Streetcar Named Desire. Plays included are: At Liberty, The Magic Tower, Me, Vashya, Curtains for the Gentleman, In Our Profession, Every Twenty Minutes, Honor the Living, The Cast of the Crushed Petunias, Moony's Kid Don't Cry, The Dark Room, The Pretty Trap, Interior: Panic, Kingdom of Earth, I Never Get Dressed Till After Dark on Sundays and Some Problems for The Moose Lodge. The volume also features a foreword by Terence McNally.
