Plays for Young People
Four plays in this volume were written for teenage audiences and deal with issues of gender, AIDS, disability, relationships with parents, ethnic strife, crime, drugs and bullying. In Who's Breaking? a young man, learning that he is HIV-positive, is forced to rethink his life and attitudes. At the heart of Listen is the fractured relationship between a deaf teenager and his uncomprehending father. Sleeping dogs concerns the love affair between a Muslim boy and a Christian girl during the war in the former Yugoslavia...Wise Guys poses the central question addressed by all these plays: can young people caught up in self-destructive cycles break free of them?
