|Exploring themes from childhood to the struggles of an artist in contemporary society, this first collection of plays displays the full measure of Margulies’ theatrical achievement. Also includes: Found a Peanut, The Loman Family Picnic, The Model Apartment and What’s Wrong with This Picture? Sometimes these are bitingly funny, as in the parody Loman Family Picnic, about a young man who escapes his unhappy family life by imagining a musical of Death of a Salesman. Sometimes the plays are surreal, as in the Twilight Zone-ish What's Wrong With This Picture? about a dead wife and mother.
"Manages to transform what might have been kitchen-sink drama into theatre that is unsettling, imaginative and quite hilarious." - Howard Kissel, New York Daily News|
