Product Overview

Front Lines is a pathbreaking collection of the most important, critically acclaimed plays written by the country?s leading contemporary female playwrights.

Also included is Nilaja Sun?s outstandingNo Child . . . , winner of the Outer Critics Circle?s 2007 John Gassner Award for Best New Play?a funny, stirring one-woman show centering on an inner-city teacher?s success at involving her rebellious students in their own education by putting on a play.
