(From the publisher):
is a prose work that has often been performed as a one-woman show. It presents Sister Mechtild, a gigantic carbuncle-covered hundred-year-old nun, who is about to be beatified by the church, but goes kicking and screaming all the way.
Friday, a man convicted of having incest with his daughter comes home from jail and tries to reestablish a loving relationship with his wife.
Serenade is a series of blackout sketches of episodes in which the characters' unconscious urges are lived out. Reality goes haywire as dream and waking realities merge.
The Hair of the Dog takes place in a brothel where a sensitive prostitute envisions her death. What starts as a police thriller transforms into a modern-day reenactment of Calvary.
