Reviews - What do customers think about International Plays for Young Audiences?
Good book for class Dec 10, 2000
I am in Dr. Ellis's Theater class and enjoyed reading most of the plays in the book. For those of you interested in this book not as required reading will find wonderful plays ranging from stories about a seal playing the "fairy god-mothers" in "Salmonberry" to a play about western racism in "Race". An excellent book for theater majors.
