This collection contains three full-length plays:NOCTURNEANIMALS AND PLANTSBLACKBIRDNOCTURNE:Theres a finality in fact, says the narrator of Adam Rapps grief-laden monologue NOCTURNE, a stunning confrontation with truth that spares neither the character or the audience.The fact, simply stated, is this: `Fifteen years ago I killed my sister. So says a young man identified only as the Son, who accidentally decapitates his sibling in an auto accident and then attempts to come to terms with what he has done.This reconciliation forms the heart and soul of NOCTURNE, a startling, unnerving work of art that fiercely pushes the boundaries of theater.

The dense, almost novelistic, in its approach to a personal horror story.NOCTURNE... is also intensely lyrical, musical in its sounds and in its silences.Make no mistake. Rapp is an original—a distinctive voice unafraid to be too descriptive...Michael Kuchwara, Associated PressRapp uses subtle, sensuous, bold and funny language...So detailed and poetic is the writing...that we buy and are powerfully moved by the whole thing.Donald Lyons, New York Post1 MANIMALS AND PLANTS:Rough-spoken, raunchy, and sometimes guffawingly funny, award-winning playwright and novelist Adam Rapps ANIMALS AND PLANTS is very different from his NOCTURNE...The sheer liveliness of Rapps dialogue and his multifaceted characters keep his play afloat......a lurid comic phantasmagoria of life on the underside of Middle America.Markland Taylor, Variety3 M, 2 FBLACKBIRD:...a terrifically impressive British debut for new U S playwright Adam Rapp.

Froggy and Baylis are two wrecked drifters in a New York squat...BLACKBIRD could, in the hands of a lesser dramatist, be a crude mix of in-your-face grunge and sentimentality......actually, the squalor here is both appalling and cryingly funny and Rapp has a brilliant ear for talk.The IndependentThere is a strange tenderness in Rapps writing that marks him out as one to watch.Rapp has genuine Gorky-esque talent and loves his characters as all-consumingly as they do each other.The Guardian1 M, 1 F
