Humana Festival 2007: The Complete Plays is a collection of all ten scripts from the 31st Humana Festival of New American Plays, an annual cycle of world premiere productions staged at Actors Theatre of Louisville. The seven full-length plays and three ten-minute plays in this anthology encompass many of the most exciting and distinct new voices in theater today -- from the true story of a teenager's near-fatal internet attraction (dark play or stories for boys); to a comedy about football and the end of the world (The As If Body Loop); to examining the idiosyncrasies of the bachelor/ette party (Batch). Humana Festival 2007: The Complete Plays will appeal to all lovers of dramatic literature, including any students, teachers, professors, library patrons, and theatre producers in search of engaging new work.
This collection also includes a unique panel discussion about the international collaborative performance of 365 Days/365 Plays by Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks.
