Tales of the Lost Formicans and other plays

By Constance Congdon

Paperback £17.99

Immensely inventive and challenging, Constance Congdon is one of America's finest playwrights, endowed with compassion, keen insight and an unfailing comic sensibility. This edition contains an introduction by Tony Kushner.

Throughout the plays in her first collection, Congdon demonstrates a range rare in writers in any age, from a sombre meditation on life in the postnuclear age (No Mercy, 3f 6m) to madcap social satire (Losing Father's Body, 7f 6m) from an epic historical exploration of love and sexual identity (Casanova, 7f 6m doubling) to her most popular play to date (Tale of the Lost Formicans, 3f 4m).
