Quills and Other Plays by Doug Wright
Book DescriptionSelected early works from the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright. Throughout his work, Doug Wright has often combined the personal, the social, and the political, in the process unearthing fundamental truths about life and art while casting an unblinking eye on the dark--and darkly funny--side of human nature. Gathered here are three of Wright's early plays, including Interrogating the Nude , a tongue-in-cheek reimagining of the uproar surrounding the debut of Marcel Duchamp's work in America; Watbanaland , a satiric dissection of yuppie desire and a haunting look at family and faith; and the Obie Award-winning Quills , which explores the boundaries of artistic expression and the dangers of censorship as they played out in the Marquis de Sade's final days at Charenton Asylum.
