Plays for Young People - Who’s Breaking? & Listen & Sleeping Dogs & Wise Guys
Philip Osment Price: $29.95
Specifically directed at teenage audiences, these four plays deal with issues of gender, AIDS, disability, relationships, ethnic strife, crime, drugs and bullying
In Who's Breaking? a young man, learning that he is HIV-positive, is forced to re-think his life and attitudes
At the heart of Listen is the fractured relationship between a deaf teenager and his uncomprehending father
Sleeping Dogs concerns the love affair between a Muslim boy and a Christian girl during the war in former Yugoslavia
Through its three troubled protagonists, Wise Guys poses the central question addressed by all these plays - can young people caught up in self-destructive cycles break free of them?
