With this collection of eight plays written about teenagers for teenage actors, Max Bush captures teens' archetypal search for identity and purpose in the context of engaging with the world around them. He does so with an inventive dramaturgy that makes these plays both objects and vehicles for the student actors' meaningful explorations. Funny and real, the characters who populate this collection appeal to high-school actors because students recognize themselves in the characters. Winner of numerous national awards and grants, including the American Alliance for Theatre & Education's Chorpenning Cup for his body of work, Bush adds two previously unpublished plays to his significant contributions to dramatic literature for young people. Looking Out continues Bush's commitment to presenting contemporary, grounded and entertaining material perfect for high-school drama programs. The collection also contains a romping two-act high-school version of The Three Musketeers. The other titles within the collection include: Sarah, Wildboy, Voices From the Shore, Kara in Black, From Every Mountainside and What Remains. Commissioning directors and teachers provide insights into the plays and their productions in introductions that accompany each piece.
