Description

In Teatrophy: Three More Plays, critically-acclaimed playwright/author/poet Peter Carlaftes offers a trio of brilliant and intense modern plays that inspire on both page and stage. In "Anti," Carlaftes explores a frightening future-in which government surveillance and data mining is the norm-through the eyes of a theater director on the verge of giving up hope. The chilling psycho-sexual drama "Closure" examines the relationship between a woman whose sister was abused a child, and the rapist-murderer that stalks her outside her therapist's office. In the tender and humorous "Inside Straight," characters must confront their lovers' sudden shift in sexual orientation as a gay man and a lesbian woman discover they are attracted to each other. The San Francisco Bay Guardian praised the play: "Inside Straight is a comedy of eros!...? restive heart knows no logic or permanence." All three plays share a passion for beautifully drawn, full characters and powerful moments that force them to expose the true identity they work so hard to hide. As the SF Weekly raved, "As with Strindberg, Beckett or even Sartre, Carlaftes' message seems to be something we intuit, like music."
