Overview

This powerful anthology brings together reflective and raw plays by American playwrights surrounding the psychic and political boundaries of the many faces and shadows of terrorism.

Allan Havis's introduction addresses a variety of terrorism cases from the last 25 years, examines several theories of the root causes of modern terrors, and underscores how theatre forms a unique contour to social and philosophical thought on terrorism.

With a foreword from Robert Brustein, the anthology features:

Break of Noon by Neil LaBute
7/11 by Kia Corthron
Omnium Gatherum by Theresa Rebeck and Alexandra Gersten-Vassilaros
Columbinus by PJ Paparelli and Stephen Karam
Why Torture is Wrong, and the People Who Love Them by Christopher Durang
