Description

A collection of sharp, innovative plays by the Pulitzer
Prize-winning playwright of Fairview.

Jackie Sibblies Drury has established herself as a bold and
formally innovative writer whose work upends expectations of what theater can
be and should do. Her layered, complex plays deftly explore the ways in which
the white gaze works to reduce and marginalize Black lives.

This new collection
gathers three of her plays: Really, Social Creatures, and We Are
Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as
Southwest Africa, From the German Sudwestafrika, Between the Years 1884-1915
.
In these works, comedy and tragedy hover side by side as the personal meets the
political and the past meets the present. Each work is a reckoning, both with
the looming specter of history, but also with the performative and fractured
self.
