    1. D cid ment l auto dition continue r server de jolies surprises Nina Lane est une auteure de quelques nouvelles et d un roman erotica utilisant plut t la domination Et elle vient de publier une superbe histoire qui se d roulera sur plusieurs pisodes mais ce premier est intrigant et tout fait r ussi.Les h ros sont deux personnages que nous connaissons bien dans la romance Olivia est une jeune femme l enfance tr s difficile dont nous allons faire la connaissance alors qu elle est mari e depuis troi [...]

    2. As you can imagine, a book with 36 plays will evoke a variety of responses A couple may have bored me a few were obvious or simply didn t meet the level of most but the grand majority were entertaining, and several were fabulous I loved Krispinsky Post Its was clever Tarantino was cute, as was a Bad Play for Worse Actors, and Check, Please The premise for Controlling Interest sounded lame but it was wonderful, perhaps my favourite But it has stiff competition from the Zig Zag Woman Both of these [...]

    3. I think in some cases this book is mistitled Sometimes the author seems to think the premise is enough to make the show funny, and they don t feel it necessary to give a satisfying ending especially true of No One Can Know the Mind of God While many of the funnier or engaging well written pieces were in the second half of the book, at least one Pops I would NOT have classified as a comedy While the Lucille Ball imitations would be silly done by a guy, that s totally not the point of the piece I [...]

    4. So many funny short plays in this volume it s hard to review them all However I can say if you want to read good comprehensive selection of fairly recent humorous plays, this one has everything And it has the advantage of representing the last decade 2000s which was a very complex and introspective decade for obvious reasons Some of the funniest plays are also the most bittersweet The editors have a lot of experience compiling plays in other volumes their expertise shows here.

    5. This collection of plays wavered between enjoyable and I wish I hadn t read that for me Grown ups may find some interesting material here Folks looking for plays to read with teens or younger should skip this book.I did particularly enjoy two of the plays The Spot by Steven Dietz was an entertaining take on the creation of an honest political ad Post Its, Notes On A Marriage by Paul Dooley and Winnie Holzman was simple, funny, and sweet.

    6. 2.5 Stars.Some good short plays in this collection, some not so good If I had to pick a favorite I could probably narrow it down to Your Mother s Butt by Alan Ball and Wanda s Visit by Christopher Durang Both of these are very funny and worth a read.Check it out if you re into short comedic stage plays.

    7. Eh Not a keeper, but there are a few decent scenes for a high school comedy night Several duds Good scenes include Check, please by Jonathan Rand a series of horrific first dates , and Wanda s Visit by the dependably funny Chris Durang.

    8. 37 short plays from Shel Silverstein, Elaine May of Nichols May , Steve Martin his was the worst of the bunch , and others from weirdly surreal, to bland, to wonderfully funny some were fabulous fact I found myself smiling while thinking about them months after reading this book

    9. Reading this to try to find a play to do with a class Skimmed through the plays which would have suited our needs, but finally, despite one I really liked Collective Bargaining Something like that , we will be doing a different one.

    10. Quality all across the spectrum A couple of hilarious ones Elaine May s The Way of All Fish is brilliant Wanda s Visit is hilarious Inspiring as a writer because some are so good and others because I can do that.

    11. Although all of the plays that I have read so far have an element of comedy or at least satire , I am not sure that I would classify this text as an anthology of comedies.

    12. This collection has some fantastic short pieces If you are looking to do a scene for a class, or would like to put up a show of one acts, look through this book.
