Description
 
Stephen Adly Guirgis has been hailed as one of the most promising playwrights at work in America today. A masterful poet of the downtrodden, his plays portray life on New York's hardscrabble streets in a manner both tender and unflinching, while continually exploring the often startling gulf between who we are and how we perceive ourselves. Gathered in this volume is his current off-Broadway hit,Our Lady of 121st Street, a comic portrait of the graduates of a Harlem Catholic school reunited at the funeral of a beloved teacher, along with his two previous plays: the philosophical jailhouse dramaJesus Hopped the A TrainandIn Arabia, We'd All Be Kings, anIceman Comethfor the Giuliani era that looks at the effect of Times Square's gentrification on its less desirable inhabitants.
