Richard Foreman's work continues to define American experimental theater, and this brand new collection reaffirms his status as "the reigning philosopher vaudevillian of the New York avant-garde." In addition to six new plays--"Paradise Hotel," "The Universe," "Permanent Brain Damage," "Risk It! Risk It!," "Pearls for Pigs," and "Benita Canova" (the last two of which won Obie awards for Best Play)--this collection also boasts two short essays on Foreman's singular approach to the art of playwrighting. "On My Plays" provides crucial insight into how the playwright assesses the motivation behind writing his own plays, and "Rules" offers a program for a kind of writing that liberates the mind and encourages faith in language that can abide in the struggles of any kind of writer.show more
