The Rug Merchants of Chaos and other plays

By Ronald Ribman

Paperback £12.99

There is limited availability of this title. Please enquire before placing your order.

Three astonishingly original, provocative, scathingly funny plays from the Obie award-winning American writer.

Buck (3f 13m, doubling possible)
A prescient play about New York cameraman Buck Halloran, stuck in a coffee-swilling, doughnut-scoffing, cable-television hell.

Sweet Table at the Richelieu (7f 7m)
A densely poetic play of emotional despair in snow-peaked surroundings.

The Rug Merchants of Chaos (2f 3m)
Set on a hulking, rusting freighter hovering precariously off the coast of South Africa, this is a wildly comic vision of a frenzied quest for riches run amok in a universe filled with incalculable accident.
