3 February 2006 Plays and Playwrights 2006, the 7th volume in our annual series of anthologies, is due for release February 2006. This new collection will introduce you to some of the seasons best new plays: works by emerging playwrights that challenge the status quos of American life, that push the boundaries and definitions of traditional theatrical form, that explore and reflect the world in which we live. These plays, originally produced at venues such as Dixon Place, La MaMa, the American Living Room, Ice Factory, and the New York International Fringe Festival, are the work of more than a dozen fine young American writers.In Plays and Playwrights 2006 youll find: two comedies that consider the very serious (and oft neglected) subject of the place of art in society, two timely dramas that look at the human toll of war, two surprising and inventive pieces that give voice to members of the Great American Melting Pot, a pair of works that offer widely contrasting views of family values and personal relationships circa 2005, two compact one-acts that demonstrate conclusively the power of the ten-minute play, and two pieces that confront the alienation and dehumanization that afflict our high-tech society. (See enclosed for more details.) Plays and Playwrights 2006 will also include, for the first time a NEW FEATURE as an appendix. This section is a directory of new American plays produced in New York City which will provide a detailed view of the vitality and diversity of American dramatic literature. This should prove an invaluable resource to all those interested in current drama; indispensable to academics, producing organizations, theatre goers, and historians.
