Announcing the 2007 winner of the Yale Drama SeriesJohn Connolly s "The Boys from Siam "has been chosen as the first winner of the Yale Drama Series. This play was selected by playwright and contest judge Edward Albee, winner of the Pulitzer prize. Based loosely on the lives of nineteenth-century brothers Chang and Eng Bunker (the source of the term Siamese twins ), "The Boys from Siam"is the haunting and lyrical story of conjoined twins Pigg and Pegg. In his foreword, Edward Albee writes that the work is a beautifully realized concentrated universe. It takes big chances along the way . . . and makes us carereally care.

Review quote

"The Boys from Siam" offers a dark meditation on attachment and independence. . . . Connolly has taken his imaginative freedom in a challenging direction."-Bill Marx, PRI's The World -- Bill Marx * PRI's The World * "Fascinating. . . . Like Beckett, Connolly uses literate wit and a gift for simple but evocative stage pictures to make his sometimes bleak vision palatable."-Jack Helbig, Booklist -- Jack Helbig * Booklist *
