Selections come from Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman; Lonne Elder III’s Ceremonies in Dark Old Men; Harvey Fierstein’s Torch Song Trilogy; Beth Henley’s Crimes of the Heart; Lynne Alvarez’s The Guitarron; David Mamet’s A Wasted Weekend; Terrence McNally’s Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune; and Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing.
Each selection is introduced with some information about the play, its characters and setting. There is also an interview with Arthur Miller.
