“Nersesian is this generation's Mark Twain and the East River is his Mississippi.”—Jennifer Belle, author of High Maintenance

“Award-winning playwright Arthur Nersesian has woven an effective dramatic form through four plays, each quite funny in its own way. Each yields very powerful human results while subtly investigating the major social issues of our time.”—Evangelina Borges, Trying Time Press

Nersesian's cult status has grown from the success of his novels, and here for the first time his equal skills as a playwright are revealed to a hungry public.

Rent Control
East Village Writer's Bloc
Plea Bargains
Spare Change
