Funny, Strange, Provocative: Seven Plays from Clubbed Thumb
"This anthology represents the jazziest, most edgy writers in contemporary American drama today." --Paula Vogel
Funny, Strange, Provocative includes seven plays produced by Clubbed Thumb, the Obie Award-winning downtown New York City theater company that burst onto the new play scene in 1996. Edgy and thought-provoking, each play is funny, strange, and provocative in surprising, widely varying ways -- including an apartment that both adores and despises its inhabitants in Crumble (Lay Me Down, Justin Timberlake), a metropolitan housewife who senses that something is watching her in 16 Spells to Charm the Beast, and a group of traveling freak show performers who reveal a deep humanity underneath their crowd-drawing deformities in Freakshow, with other inventive stories.
