Humana 2006: The Complete Plays collects all ten plays produced at Actors Theatre of Louisville during the 30th anniversary season of the Humana Festival of New American Plays. The seven full-length plays and three ten-minute plays in this anthology encompass many of the most eclectic and exciting new voices in theater today -- from a technology-reliant man learning to listen to a planet on the verge of apocalypse (Natural Selection); to a left-leaning American citizen's doomed chance to give the President an earful (Listeners); to a group of Depression-era men who put on a fundraiser, and in the process find themselves transformed by more than just the ladies' costumes they don (Act A Lady). Alternately painful, subversive, hysterically funny, and poignant, these plays ask you to engage with characters and worlds you think you know, and then look again with new eyes. Read More
