Plays in Time

The Beekeeper’s Daughter, Prophecy, Another Life and Extreme Whether

Plays in Time collects four plays by Karen Malpede set during influential events from the late twentieth century to the present: the Bosnian war and rape camps; the invasion and occupation of Iraq and Israel’s 2006 bombardment of Lebanon; 9/11 and the US torture program; and the heroism of climate scientists facing attack from well-funded climate change deniers. In each play in this anthology, nature, poetry, ritual, and empathy are presented in contrast to the abuse of persons and world. Despite their serious topics, the plays are full of humor and distinctively entertaining personalities.
 
Each play was developed by Theater Three Collaborative for production in New York and internationally in Italy, Australia, London, Berlin, and Paris.

Reviews

"There are American writers who are politically aware and responsible and many explore situations on a global rather than domestic level. One such is Karen Malpede whose new collection Plays in Time explores issues that are not only relevant in the States but to the rest of the world as well. . . . Karen Malpede is a strong, committed writer of powerful drama and is a voice that should be listened to."
