"Ruhl has a mind of literary elasticity . . . that confirms the emergence of a fresh and provocative voice that the theatre desperately needs."—The Washington Post
Two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist for Drama playwright Sarah Ruhl offers up seventy-four reflections on the world of theater. Touching on everything from literary influences and privacy to swordfights, crickets, and umbrellas, Ruhl's short "essays" are thoughtful examinations of what plays were, are, and could be. A humorous, provocative, and personal glimpse into her unique mind, this delightful tome is an easy read that proves difficult to forget.
Sarah Ruhl's plays include In the Next Room (or the vibrator play), Passion Play, The Clean House (finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn prize), Dean Man's Cell Phone (Helen Hayes Award for Best New Play), Demeter in the City (nominated for nine NAACP awards), Eurydice, Melancholy Play, Late: a cowboy song, and Orlando. She is the recipient of a Whiting Writers' Award, a PEN/Laura Pels Award, and a MacArthur Fellowship, and is a three-time Tony Award nominee. She is the most produced female playwright over the past five years, and her plays have premiered on Broadway, Off-Broadway, and in many theaters around the world.
Read information about the authorSarah Ruhl (born 1974) is an American playwright. She is the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship and the PEN/Laura Pels International Foundation for Theater Award for a distinguished American playwright in mid-career.
Originally, she intended to be a poet. However, after she studied under Paula Vogel at Brown University (A.B., 1997; M.F.A., 2001), she was persuaded to switch to playwriting. Her first play was The Dog Play, written in 1995 for one of Vogel's classes. Her roots in poetry can be seen in the way she uses language in her plays. She also did graduate work at Pembroke College, Oxford.
In September 2006, she received a MacArthur Fellowship. The announcement of that award stated: "Sarah Ruhl, 32, playwright, New York City. Playwright creating vivid and adventurous theatrical works that poignantly juxtapose the mundane aspects of daily life with mythic themes of love and war."
