The collected 'essays and opinions' of the founder, director, playwright and star of New York's famous Ridiculous Theatre.

The late Charles Ludlam ransacked theatrical and literary history in an evolutionary quest for a modern art of stage comedy. His more than thirty plays - most famously Bluebeard, Camille, Galas and The Mystery of Irma Vep - are among the funniest, most erudite and anarchic in the modern repertoire.
