Jean-Claude van Itallie

Jean-Claude van Itallie is one of the most distinguished playwrights of the American avant-garde

A keen deconstruction of American popular culture, the America Hurrah triptych served notice that here was a major new dramatic voice

Bag Lady is written in the voice of a deceptively insightful homeless woman

The Serpent, a fanciful interpretation of the story of Adam and Eve

The Traveller, which depicts a charismatic and brilliant artist recovering from a stroke

It also includes van Itallie's dazzling play based on the Tibetan Book of the Dead

A definitive collection of the work of a major American playwright
