REVIEW

"Louisville's annual Humana Festival is famous as a showcase for new plays and playwrights. The 2002 festival included new works by such big guns as Anne Bogart, Tina Howe, Julia Jordan, Charles L. Mee, and Adam Rapp, while emerging playwrights were relegated to Humana's National Ten-Minute Play Contest. This collection manifests positive and negative sides of Humana's success. The best plays here--Howe's witty, polished fantasy, Rembrandt's Gift, and Charles L. Mee's literate comedy about a young woman entangled with an older man, Limonade Tous Les Jours --may be the best new full-length plays produced in America last year. But the results of the National Ten-Minute Play Contest are not included, which means the only truly new voices and risky writing appears in the interesting but gimmicky "Snapshot." Like "The Phone Plays" of previous years, "Snapshot" consists of the contributions of playwrights well-known and not, this time in response to a Lee Friedlander photograph of tourists looking at Mount Rushmore. Of these, Honor Kane's moving meditation on 9/11 is most haunting. " - Booklist
