"Humana Festival 2011: The Complete Plays" brings together all ten scripts from the 2011 Humana Festival of New American Plays, the 35th annual cycle of world premiere productions staged at Actors Theatre of Louisville. This unique compilation features an exceptional array of work by some of the most exciting new voices in the American theatre, from a couple who abandon a hectic existence in modern-day NYC to live in a careful recreation of 1955 ("Maple and Vine"), to a sister and brother left to fend for themselves with a stuffed frog and a rifle for company ("Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them"), to an immensely wealthy trophy wife who hijacks her personal assistant's sister-bonding weekend ("Elemeno Pea"). This unique and diverse compilation of plays is a must-have for anyone searching for challenging, captivating, and bold theater.
