Evening Plays $18.99

Richard Maxwell

Published by Nick Hern Books

Large Mixed Cast

Three new dramas, written by award-winning playwright Richard Maxwell as a response to Dante's Divine Comedy

The Evening centers around three archetypal barflies who together form an elegy of universal loss

The loss of a loved one seeps poignantly into this illustration of the stark reality and emotional tumult of coping with death

Samara is a mythic tale of redemption that follows a messenger through a bleak frontier in his quest to collect a debt, though the human cost of the journey may be more than he bargained for

And Paradiso, which takes place in the not-too distant future, describes three great loves: family, country and God


"Perhaps the greatest American experimental theater auteur of his generation" ~ New York Times
