Review: The America Play and Other Works

User Review  - Steve - Goodreads

Fresh. New. Thought-provoking. Loved it. I especially loved the essays. I suspect the plays would ring so much more meaningful if viewed as opposed to read. Glad to have been introduced to a transcendent new voice in American drama. Read full review
