New 2013 Title from NoPassport Press:
by Todd London
This is an astonishing, indispensable retrospective collection of essays, articles, reviews and reflections on artists by distinguished theatre critic and scholar Todd London, artistic director of New Dramatists. The volume spans writings from 1988-2013 and is collected for the first time. A vital, important anthology for practitioners, scholars, students, and theatre-lovers everywhere.
"No one writes about the beauty, import and frustration of theater with the eloquence, warmth and depth of Todd London. In his collection of essays that span a quarter century, he audaciously interrogates and celebrates the medium in equal measure, unafraid to undress our notions about the art and business of theater. This is a collection long in the making, and reflects the wisdom and possessiveness of someone who has dedicated his career to safeguarding the legacy of theatre artists.

New from Santa Catalina Editions: PLAYS OF LOVE & ENCHANTMENT

Wed, 11/21/2012 - 13:35


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:

by matthew paul olmos
"What ensues is a complex encounter that challenges notions of boundary, safety, identity and what you would do for your family. It's a dissection of difference, of connection, of the borders and barriers we use to distance ourselves, and those dangerous moments when we cross over those borders and barriers.”
