These four plays by Sidney Goldfarb are politically astute and savagely funny, though remarkably compassionate, like a stew cooked up by the Marx Brothers, Groucho and Karl, after years of Zen Meditation. Pursued by the forces of murder and exploitation, ordinary people struggle just to stay alive. The path to liberation is through the human body, at once the arena of conflict and the locus of healing in a culture torn by menace and mayhem. This is a Theater of Incarnation. It is also a Theater of Celebration. Startling invention in language and structure turn palpable horrors into unexpected forms of transcendence. Goldfarb ranks among the indispensable experimental playwrights of his generation.
