Product Overview

The intellectual offspring of Ionesco, Beckett, and Pinter, Walter Wykes is proof that the Theatre of the Absurd lives on. In his plays, he creates a series of modern myths, tapping into something in the strata of the subconscious, through ritualism and rich, poetic language. The worlds he creates are brand new, and hilarious, yet each contains an ancient horror we all know and cannot escape and have never been able to hang one definitive word on. "The Worker" explores the life of a young woman who fashions a fake child to help her cope with the loneliness she endures each day while her husband is away at work. "Family 2.0" tells the story of a man who invades a stranger''s home and attempts to convince the family he finds there to accept him as their new husband/father. "The Spotted Man" follows the trials of a man cursed with a strange disease that may signal the end of the human race. Also included are "Cherry Bizarre" and "The Tragical Tale of Melissa McHiney McNormous McWhale."
