Collection / Anthology

Dramatic Comedy

This collection contains three full-length plays: THE GAME OF LIGHT, KRISIT, RAIN. SOME FISH. NO ELEPHANTS. KRISIT: “There’s not a lot of fat to trim in KRISIT, a satire on Hollywood… Skewering the greed, vanity and bloated egos of Hollywood types is an easy target that has been done more times than Krisit’s crow’s-feet. But York’s script has plenty of clever quips…”Robert Dominguez, Daily News RAIN. SOME FISH. NO ELEPHANTS.: “In Y York’s futuristic comedy RAIN. SOME FISH. NO ELEPHANTS., genetic engineering has produced a submissive nation of clones and drones. Everything is gene coded so all individuality can be obliterated, except for one stubbornly old-fashioned family trying to thaw the perpetual nuclear winter. That winter is actually an endless flood like rainy season. The play…begins as a kind of science-fiction variation on YOU CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YOU with a wildly eccentric family resolutely staying out of the mainstream. In this case, the father is a crank who has quit his scientific post in a dehumanizing laboratory to go fishing. He neglects his suicidal wife and their two very odd daughters. The catalyst for renewal is a black man, cloned to be a member of a faceless servant class. Removed from his diet of ‘stoppers’, pills that deny incentive, he becomes a rebel. As conceived by York…he is an engaging figure, awakening to his personality as well as to his racial identity. …[Y York] has created a thought provoking comic parable about mankind’s indominability. As much as anything, the play is concerned with the survival of history itself…”Mel Gussow, The New York Times This collection contains three full-length plays: THE GAME OF LIGHT, KRISIT, RAIN.
