As founder of the innovative Ridiculous Theatrical Company, Ludlam stretched the boundaries of stage art, introducing a radical energy and spontaneity to the form. Each of the 30 plays in this collection, many of which are previously unpublished, fascinate the reader with their unyielding originality, frenetic action, controversial and hilarious commentary on everything from history to social mores, vivid characterization, and often absurd stage directions. Both difficult and delightful, Ludlam's written work leaves the reader yearning to see his strange little universes come alive on stage. With Ludlam's brilliant career stopped in mid-stride by his 1987 death from AIDS, these plays are important in preserving and transmitting his odd genius, in validating the positive if sometimes preposterous results of a risk-taking not often seen in contemporary American theatrical productions.
