    “[A] hilarious and disturbing new comedy about all-American violence” and other whip-smart political satires by the Tony Award-winning playwright (Ben Branley, The New York Times).   Christopher Durang, who The New York Observer called “Jonathan Swift’s nicer, younger brother,” became one of America’s most beloved and acclaimed playwrights by marrying gonzo farce with incisive social critique. Now collected in Why Torture Is Wrong, and the People Who Love Them and Other Political Plays are Durang’s most revealing satirical plays.  Why Torture Is Wrong, and the People Who Love Them is the story of a young woman in crisis: Is her new husband, whom she married when drunk, a terrorist? Or just crazy? Or both? Is her father’s hobby of butterfly collecting really a cover for his involvement in a shadow government? Does her mother frequent the theater for mental escape, or is she just insane? Add in a minister who directs porno, and a ladylike operative whose underwear just won’t stay up, and this black comedy will make us laugh all the way to the waterboarding room.   Also included in this volume are: Excerpts from Sex and LongingCardinal O’ConnorThe Book of Leviticus ShowEntertaining Mr. HelmsThe Doctor Will See You NowUnder Duress: Words on FireAn Alter Boy Talks to GodThe Hardy Boys and the Mystery of Where Babies Come From

    Three plays from the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award–winning author of Glengarry Glen Ross and American Buffalo.  The Woods is a modern dramatic parable about, as Mamet put it, “why men and women have a hard time trying to get along with each other.” The story features a young man and woman spending a night in his family’s cabin where they experience passion, then disillusionment, but are in the end reconciled by mutual need.   In Lakeboat, an Ivy League college student takes a summer job as a cook aboard a Great Lakes cargo ship where the crewmembers—men of all ages—share their wild fantasies about sex, gambling, and violence. Mamet also wrote the screenplay to the 2000 film starring Peter Falk and Denis Leary.   In Edmond, a white-collar New York City man is set morally adrift after a visit to a fortune-teller. He soon leaves an unfulfilling marriage to find sex, adventure, companionship, and, ultimately, the meaning of his existence. Mamet also wrote the screenplay for the 2005 film starring William H. Macy.   “[A] beautifully conceived love story.” —Chicago Daily News on The Woods   “[Mamet’s] language has never been so precise, pure, and affecting.” —Richard Eder of The New York Times on The Woods   “Richly overheard talk and loopy, funny construction.” —Michael Feingold in The Village Voice on Lakeboat   “A riveting theatrical experience that illuminates the heart of darkness.” —Jack Kroll of Newsweek on Edmond
