New September 2012 Release from Eyecorner Press:

Five Contemporary Plays Inspired by the Greeks
by Caridad Svich

Between worlds? Only through a blasted heaven.

THE BOOK: A collection of five daring, radical reconfigurations of ancient plays and myths by US playwright Caridad Svich, winner of a 2012 OBIE for Lifetime Achievement. From the mediatised archival landscape of the haunting Antigone Arkhe to the brutalised labyrinth-city of Steal Back Light from the Virtual to the eerie, broken universe of Wreckage, Svich burns through the core of mythic stories with a heightened sense of theatricality and ecstatic poetry
