In America, Flyin' West is one of the most often staged African-American plays of the nineties. Cleage is one of the few black woman to achieve national recognition as a playwright in America, and her body of work for the stage provides a remarkable and penetrating look at the African-American experience over the last 100 years.

'As a woman, as an African-American, her artistic objectivity and sensitivity to history combine with her capacity to dig for truth' - Ruby Dee.

'One of the voices singing in the wilderness.' - Ossie Davis

The volume also contains Blues for the Alabama Sky (cast 2f 3m) and Bourbon on the Border (cast 2f 2m) as well as two one-act plays Chain (cast 1f) and Late Bus to Mecca (cast 2f).
