Three Plays: Kafka in Love, Last Leavings, Double Shoot
Kafka in Love deals with the last year of Franz Kafka's life. It won the Forest A. Roberts/Playwrighting Contest award and was produced at the Forest Roberts Theatre in Marquett, Michigan. With Ron Moody directing, Alexander Racolin produced the play in London. From the critics on Kafka in Love: Lieberman's script follows the anarchic logic of psychoanalysis, rushing backwards and forwards across Kafka's famous frontier between ordinary life and the terror that seems more real. The material is authentic, the atmosphere that of a Yiddish burlesque house. Striking from an unexpected angle the insight is genuine. The Leavings is a winner of the National Playwrights Showcase prize. When it was produced at the Gallery Theatre in Los Angeles, Jay Reiner in the Los Angeles Herald said Lieberman bores in, relentlessly sparing us few details in the jagged arc of [dying], without once getting morbid or morose. Double Shoot, formerly titled The Gandhi Problem was optioned by PCPA. It was performed on a national broadcast on France Culture (the French National Radio) and in a staged reading by The Upstart State Company.
