Five Plays

By Samuel D. Hunter

Paperback £21.99

Five plays by a major American playwright, all set in the author’s home state of Idaho, demonstrating his extraordinary knack for exposing, without condescension or easy moralizing, the pathos in marginalized lives.

The plays included in this volume are:

  • Pocatello
  • The Few
  • A Great Wilderness
  • Rest
  • A Permanent Image

Samuel D. Hunter’s plays are populated with characters from the bleak side of the American economy. Laced with poetic images yet drawn with meticulous realism, Hunter’s plays linger in franchise restaurants, retirement facilities, mountain camps, and struggling businesses.

Press Quotes

'The Few is a compassionate, gently hued drama about lonely lives. Mr. Hunter writes with unusual insight into, and empathy for, people whose lives have settled into sad stasis, or strategic withdrawal.'
