Maple and Vine & Other Plays (Paperback)
Known for his ability to turn an unusual premise into something profound and sublime, Jordan Harrison is one of our most inventive and thought-provoking contemporary playwrights. His work grapples with the fleeting nature of time, the fallibility of memory, the volatility of identity, and our often fraught relationships with technology. This new collection gathers together several of his plays, including the title play, Maple and Vine, which follows a couple who decides to forgo their urban lives in favor of recreating the "simpler" lifestyle of the 1950s, trading cell phones for Tupperware parties in a newfound quest for happiness. This volume also contains the plays The Amateurs, Amazons and Their Men, and Doris to Darlene.
