The finest plays of writer, director, and teacher, Jon Lipsky, are published for the first time in this two-volume collection.

Insightful and colorful essays frame each volume and introduce each of the plays, composed by several of Lipsky’s closest collaborators: Tim McDonough, Kate Snodgrass, Vincent Murphy, MJ Bruder Munafo, Robert Bosnak, Stan Strickland, Susan Thompson, Arnie Reisman, Debra Wise, Bill Barclay, and Jonah Lipsky.
