New November 2012 title from Santa Catalina Editions, an imprint of NoPassport: PLAYS OF LOVE & ENCHANTMENT by Caridad Svich Astral Yearning, Bliss, Elysium at 3 AM, Slow Fast Walking on the Red Eye, Transmission 0500/To the Blue Peninsula, Turn the Dark Up, Bow Down, This is a Hymn The six plays in this collection are a series of meditations on love, time, virtuality, and transience in the modern world. They focus mainly on young characters drifting through their lives, and in and out of relationships. These theatre pieces are written as little spells of love. They bristle with both poison and enchantment, as they send their characters into orbit. What they ask, in sometimes ardently pure text, is for a new kind of theatre language to be born- out of and through aspects of love. paperback ISBN: 978-1-300-42880-0 retail: $20.00 Purchase link: http://www.lulu.com/shop/caridad-svich/caridad-svich-plays-of-love-enchantment/paperback/product-20525324.html

New for October 2012 from Santa Catalina Editions: ART AND DECADENCE PLAYS (Magnificent Waste, Lulu Ascending, Tilt Heaven) by Caridad Svich The three plays by OBIE-winning playwright Caridad Svich examine varying aspects of art and decadence through the lens of contemporary visual art, photography, painting, and fashion. MAGNIFICENT WASTE (2012 finalist for PEN Center USA Literary Award in Drama), LULU ASCENDING (a play on Wedekind's Lulu plays) and TILT HEAVEN are acid-dipped views of celebrity culture and consumerism, suffused with a hard ache for the lost souls that inhabit their distinct harsh-lit, emptied worlds of sadness.
