About the Book

Developed to meet the needs of secondary and post-secondary drama teaching and performance, these four one-act plays - The Wild Guys (Andrew Wreggitt and Becky Shaw), Monkey Business (Nicole Zylstra), Shopaholic (Glenda Stirling), and Borrow Me (Clem Martini) - demonstrate the tremendous range of the one-act form. Whether it is a romantic comedy of ideas set in the dense tropical jungle, a tale of obsessive commercialism and surprising redemption set in our urban malls, a crazed investigation of male psychology in the backwoods of the Rocky Mountains, or a ghostly avenger's tale played out in a dining room, these plays will not fail to please a wide audience.

The book also offers four scenes for in-class rehearsal and investigation and four monologues for study or use in auditions.

For production, for reflection, for performance, or as a teaching tool, Four by Four by Four is certain to become a well-used, well-loved text.
