Dancock's DanceDancock's Dance
Guy Vanderhaeghe
Shell-shocked, judged unfit for society and haunted by the sins of war, Lieutenant John Carlyle Dancock finds himself commited to an insane asylum where he cannot escape the confines of righteous authority or his own conscience, which visits him in the ghostly apparition of a dead soldier. M-5, F-1. Softcover, 128 pp. $16.95.

Rahul Varma
Bhopal, 1984: With the presence of the Karbide International Pesticide factory, the city begins to claw its way out of endemic poverty. But what is to be made of the deformed babies born to women living near the factory? And the poison gas explosion that will leave three thousand people dead in just a few minutes -- and will kill tens of thousands more in the years to come. This play -- a pitiless analysis of the stakes of globalization -- explores how this happens. Softcover, 71 pp. $16.95.

Rahul Varma

M-1, F-5. 71 pp. $17.95.

Another Country & BloomAnother Country & Bloom

Fronteras AmericanasFronteras Americanas
Guillermo Verdecchia
Fuelled by equal parts outrage, intelligence, and wit, Fronteras Americanas re-creates one person's struggle to construct a home between two cultures, while exploding the images and constructs built up around Latinos and Latin Americans. 1-person 79 pp. $15.95.

Citizen SuarezCitizen Suarez
Guillermo Verdecchia
