Here is a full evening of dramatic excitement created by a group of talented young playwrights. From a child's remembrance of a pair of red tennis shoes, through five different views of growing up as seen in "Adolescent Fugue," to a searing view of a young man's inner rage at society, each of these separate but related works provides insightful "glimpses" of the worlds as young writers see it. The scenes, dramatic monologues and short playlets are presented here in a context that results in a full-length show of many and varied textures. Please note that the work by these playwrights was in no way edited or censored by either adults directing the project or by this publisher. The sharp impact of their "glimpses" has a frank reality in a few of the individual pieces that may be considered unsuitable for some theatres. Happily, with so many choices before you, cuts are easily made and you may also insert original work by your own young playwrights. Thus, you present the show as it works best for your actors and your audience. As offered here, however, the show worked spectacularly before an audience of major critics from all over the world.
