“Paula Vogel’s plays wake me up. Profoundly. They jump off the page and right at you. They go for the throat with enormous humanity, humor, and intelligence. Her plays are at once simple and complex, terrifying and encouraging, funny and heartbreaking.” –Anne Bogart
The first major collection of Paula Vogel’s work surveys a remarkable decade of her writing for the stage. Vogel’s singular voice is exhilarating, comic and heartbreaking in its examination of such contemporary issues as the feminization of poverty, the nontraditional family, the AIDS epidemic, domestic violence and pornography.
