Don Nigro

Collection / Anthology

ISBN: 9780573695919

This eight play collection is a diverse mixture of strangeness laced with dark humor and supernatural terror: an eerie, Gothic precursor to Nigro's long sequence of Pendragon County plays;  three twisted monologues for women; a labyrinth play about the famously beautiful mistress of King Henry II; a tale of subtle but deadly betrayal involving The Benny Hill Show; a tale of forbidden love and obsessive spinning between a Devil-worshipping brother and sister; and a powerful modern, realistic play about the passionate and dangerous encounter between an American journalist and a girl who has become a sniper in a war torn Balkan country. There's a little something for everyone here in this densely packed treasure chest of curiosities and horrors.

This eight play collection is a diverse mixture of strangeness laced with dark humor and supernatural terror. The title play, Glamorgan, is an eerie, Gothic precursor to Nigro's long sequence of Pendragon County plays. There are three twisted monologues for women, one with an unborn sister trapped inside her skull (The Weird Sisters), one who finds herself giving birth to hundreds of squirrels (Squirrels), and one who obsessively builds a huge, surreal mansion to house the ghosts of all the persons killed by Winchester rifles (Within The Ghostly Mansion's Labyrinth). There is also another labyrinth play (Fair Rosamund And Her Murderer), the darkly comic tale of the famously beautiful mistress of King Henry II and her romance with the thief sent to her labyrinth to kill her, a tale of subtle but deadly betrayal involving The Benny Hill Show (Give Us A Kiss And Show Us Your Knickers), a tale of forbidden love and obsessive spinning between a Devil-worshipping brother and sister (Major Weir) and a powerful modern, realistic play about the passionate and dangerous encounter between an American journalist and a girl who has become a sniper in a war torn Balkan country (Necropolis). There's a little something for everyone here in this densely packed treasure chest of curiosities and horrors.
