The plays in this volume reveal Marcel’s concrete dramatic approach to questions regarding interpersonal relations, love, family, commitment, and creative fidelity, as these are requisite attitudes and steps along the path to peace in personal, interpersonal, international and multicultural situations. These plays artfully invite readers’ personal reflections in order to clarify their stances on these and similar issues.
Plus interviews with the translator concerning each play as well as a listing of texts & audio visuals materials for use in a classroom setting.
