Crumbs from the Table of Joy and other plays

By Lynn Nottage

Paperback £17.99

A collection of work from leading American playwright Lynn Nottage.

This volume includes:

Crumbs from the Table of Joy (1995)

The Crump family is adrift and in trouble. Widowed Godfrey is under the spell of Sweet Father Divine, while his teen daughters, Ernestine and Ermina, immerse themselves in the illusions of Hollywood to escape racial prejudice. But things change quickly when free-spirited Aunt Lily shows up.

Mud, River, Stone (1996)

POOF! (1993)

Por'Knockers (1995)

Las Meninas (2002), a play inspired by the playwright's research into the African presence in 17th-century Europe.

'When I read Lynn Notage's work, I feel the excitement, the allure, that early cartographers must have felt; I discover these continental maps of the human psyche never before charted on stage. Her work explores depths of humanness, the overlapping complexities of race, gender, culture and history - and the startling simplicity of desire - with a clear tenderness, with humor, with compassion' - Paula Vogel

Press Quotes

'complex and thought provoking'

Chicago Tribune on 'Crumbs From the Table of Joy'

'arresting... chock-full of rich incisive writing'

Village Voice on 'Por'Knockers'

'fiercely imaginative. By casting light on this obscured, somewhat fanciful tale of an African in King Louis's court, Nottage reveals contemporary truths about the racial divide'

San Jose Mercury on 'Las Meninas'
