Lost Souls and Missing Persons (Collection Amerique Francaise; 5) by Sally Clark

Lost Souls and Missing Persons premiered at Theatre Passe Muraille in 1984. It is a comic, biting, surreal investigation of the question of self and identity in the North American middle-classa trope of insulating banalities which trades the bodys physical and spiritual content for the artifice of a formalized security and predictability. Hannah, wife and mother of two teenagers, vacationing with her husband Lyle in New York, wakes up in the middle of the night and looks at the man sleeping in the bed next to her and screams. She does not remember who she is, who Lyle is, how she got there, and finally, how to speak. Revealed to the audience in a series of flashbacks and through Lyles search for her, she ends up wandering among strangers and street people like herself, and is picked up by an artist who mounts her in his studio as another of his installations. AKAKAs Sally Clarks first full-length play, Lost Souls and Missing Persons is also an astonishingly complex and accomplished theatrical debut. Using a small cast to portray over twenty characters, the play stretches actors abilities to their very limits while continuing to challenge theatres to mount an elaborate production requiring crucially inventive set and lighting designs.AKAKOther books by Sally Clark available from Talonbooks:AKAKLife Without Instruction AKSaint Frances of Hollywood AKThe Trial of Judith K.
