This collection contains three full-length plays: THE LAST GOOD MOMENT OF LILY BAKER, THE WILD GOOSE CIRCUS, and THE SECOND DEATH OF PRISCILLA. THE LAST GOOD MOMENT OF LILY BAKER: “…there is a richness of characterization and scope here that tease, please and surprise, and with a mythic stretch that is, at its best, reminiscent of Edward Albee’s WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?...”Nancy Churnin, Los Angeles Times    “I first encountered the work of playwright Russell Davis…at the world premier of his FURTHER ADVENTURES OF SALLY…. I found myself hanging on every word and admiring Davis’ singular communicatory skills more with each passing moment.   …I was no less entranced with Lily than I was with Sally….   …amusing us more than a little en route with a verbal wizardry that warms and delights. Davis at the same time painlessly imparts a deeper universal meaning having to do with personal signposts lost and regained….”Nels Nelson, Daily News. THE WILD GOOSE CIRCUS: “in Russell Davis’ THE WILD GOOSE CIRCUS, these crafty artisans hit fertile pay dirt.   …Within this broken calliope frame, Davis piles a fantastic compost of meaty metaphor and biblical allegory, bears on unicycles and sad French clowns. The rich, layered text gives way to inspired surreal absurdity that isn’t merely a self-conscious jab at surrealism and absurdism….   From trapeze to pirate ship to a monster walrus head, the staging is visual poetry, making THE WILD GOOSE CIRCUS all the more strange and beautiful and rare.”Tom Orr, The Seattle Times. THE SECOND DEATH OF PRISCILLA:“THE SECOND DEATH OF PRISCILLA, a look inside the mind of a woman who’s losing it, is a play of shifting reality and poetic beauty….   Russell Davis’ play, [is] a childhood story twisted into a metaphorical fairy tale for grownups….   Priscilla is a woman afraid to leave her room. Her mind is besieged by an obsessive internal voice, depicted as a wolf disguised as a man…. He lurks outside Priscilla’s window. He stalks, beguiles and snarls in his effort to keep Priscilla under his control.   …I found myself lost in Priscilla’s delusion and moved by her transformation….”Judith Egerton, The Courier-Journal (Louisville)
