Product description

""The Great God Pan" is a haunting, deeply affecting play about the interaction of identity, psychology and pathology. Ms. Herzog writes with keen sensitivity to the complex weave of feelings embedded in all human relationships, with particular attention to the way we tiptoe around areas of radioactive emotion." - "New York Times" "Whatever the ideal contemporary American drama is, it has to look a lot like "The Great God Pan." It is provocative and subtle, slowly, carefully revelatory, sweetly moving, thought-provoking, funny and insightful." - "New York Observer" "An intelligent, delicately articulate writer." - "Village Voice" "A moving and unsettling look at the nature of identity and the vagaries of memory. With subtlety and compassion, Herzog contemplates how well we can really know ourselves." - "Backstage" Jamie's life in Brooklyn seems just fine: a beautiful girlfriend, a burgeoning journalism career, and parents who live just far enough away. But when a possible childhood trauma comes to light, lives are thrown into a tailspin. Unsettling and deeply compassionate, "The Great God Pan" tells the intimate tale of what is lost and won when a hidden truth is suddenly revealed. Amy Herzog's plays include "4000 Miles" (Pulitzer Prize finalist), "After the Revolution" and "Belleville." Ms. Herzog is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Whiting Writers' Award, an Obie Award and the Helen Merrill Award for Aspiring Playwrights.
