Three New American Plays:

Three New American Plays: "Dancing Lessons" by Mark St. Germain, "Judith of Bethulia" by Charles Bus

Here are Three New American plays written by the brightest names working in the theater today. Dancing Lessons centers on Ever, a young man with Asperger's syndrome who seeks the instruction of a Broadway dancer to learn enough dancing to survive an awards dinner. The dancer, Senga, however, is recovering from an injury that may stop her dancing career permanently. As their relationship unfolds, they're both caught off-guard by the discoveries - both hilarious and heartwarming - that they make about each other and about themselves. Judith of Bethulia, written by and starring Broadway legend Charles Busch, is the world premiere of his new play which is an outrageous and bawdy celebration of the Hollywood Biblical Epic genre! Lepers, whores, eunuchs, centurions, evil generals, youthful poets, and a beautiful redheaded widow make Charles Busch's comedy a story worth praying for. The world premier recording of Jeffrey Sweet's Kunstler brings to life William Moses Kunstler who journeyed from comfortable suburban lawyer to America's most revered and reviled attorney for the civil rights and radical movements of the last half of the 20th Century.

Darwin's Children Audiobook

Darwin's Children

Author: Greg Bear Narrator: Jeff McCarthy Release Date: April 2003

Eleven years have passed since SHEVA, an ancient retrovirus, was discovered in human DNA-a retrovirus that caused mutations in the human genome and heralded the arrival of a new wave of genetically enhanced humans. Now these changed children have reached adolescence . . . and face a world that is outraged about their very existence. For these special youths, possessed of remarkable, advanced traits that mark a major turning point in human development, are also ticking time bombs harboring hosts of viruses that could exterminate the "old" human race. Fear and hatred of the virus children have made them a persecuted underclass, quarantined by the government in special "schools," targeted by federally sanctioned bounty hunters, and demonized by hysterical segments of the population. But pockets of resistance have sprung up among those opposed to treating the children like dangerous diseases-and who fear the worst if the government's draconian measures are carried to their extreme. Scientists Kaye Lang and Mitch Rafelson are part of this small but determined minority. Once at the forefront of the discovery and study of the SHEVA outbreak, they now live as virtual exiles in the Virginia suburbs with their daughter, Stella-a bright, inquisitive virus child who is quickly maturing, straining to break free of the protective world her parents have built around her, and eager to seek out others of her kind. But for all their precautions, Kaye, Mitch, and Stella have not slipped below the government's radar. The agencies fanatically devoted to segregating and controlling the new-breed children monitor their every move-watching and waiting for the opportunity to strike the next blow in their escalating war to preserve "humankind" at any cost.
