(Best American Short Plays). "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me." Really? Words can break spirits, destroy confidence. They can also build hope and incite great acts of heroism. Playwrights know this, and so do theater audiences. Otherwise, why go? Words matter and carry clout every bit as dangerous as a hammer or crowbar. This, too, playwrights know. The monologues in this volume are full of such blows, striking at our imaginations and our memories, generating responses such as joyful laughter or chilling surprise. Others squeeze us into worlds we've never experienced, or perhaps experienced at the furthest edges of memory and recollection. Still others may help us alter the way we see certain things, people, or beliefs. Best Monologues from The Best American Short Plays, Volume Three is a collection of monologues drawn from the popular Best American Short Plays series, an archive of works from many of the best playwrights active today. Long or short, serious or not, excerpts or entireties, this collection abounds in speech acts that may trigger physical reactions and almost certainly will transform an attitude or two, drawing out lost memories, creating new ones, and definitely entertaining, engaging, amusing us all along the way.

(Applause Books). Applause is proud to continue the series that for over 70 years has been the standard of excellence for one-act plays in America. From its inception, The Best American Short Plays has identified new, cutting-edge playwrights who have gone on to establish award-winning careers, including Tennessee Williams, Edward Albee, Wendy Wasserstein, David Mamet, and Horton Foote. William W. Demastes made his debut as series editor with the well-received 2010-2011 volume, a diverse collection revolving around the multidimensional theme of love. Blogcritics said of the anthology: "This collection is a bountiful of pleasing oddities. Each work offers something worthwhile.... The collection runs the gamut of the most serious drama to the most irreverent topical mental trinkets...." Demastes returns and once again draws from works produced by some of America's finest theater companies in an effort to capture the wide range of styles, topics, and regional tastes that typifies American theater. The compilation includes works by John Guare, Neil LaBute, and A. R. Gurney, as well as contributions from a plethora of gifted, emerging playwrights.

"The Big Short" erzählt von der Erfindung einer monströsen Geldmaschine: Ein paar Hedgefond-Manager sehen das katastrophale Platzen der amerikanischen Immobilienblase nicht nur voraus, sondern sie wetten sogar im ganz großen Stil darauf. Den Kollaps des Systems befördern sie unter anderem mittels des sogenannten "shortings", Leerverkäufen von Aktien großer Investmentbanken. Doch zu jeder Wette gehört auf der anderen Seite auch einer, der sie hält. Lewis entlarvt anhand seiner Protagonisten ein System, das sich verselbständigt und mit moralischen Kategorien wie Habgier oder Maßlosigkeit längst nicht mehr zu fassen ist. Der Zusammenbruch der Finanzmärkte, so lernen wir in diesem Buch, war ein kurzer Moment der Vernunft: Der Wahnsinn hatte sich in den Jahren davor abgespielt.

Ende 1923 schlägt die Nachricht wie eine Bombe in Londons Literaturszene ein: Oscar Wilde hat sich, 23 Jahre nach seinem Tod, angeblich aus dem Jenseits zurückgemeldet! Als die übersinnlichen Botschaften veröffentlicht werden, entbrennen heiße Diskussionen: Stil und Handschrift sehen Oscar in der Tat verblüffend ähnlich, aber ist er es wirklich? Das irische Medium Hester Travers Smith, durch die "Oscar Wilde" seine erstaunlichen Ansichten aus dem Jenseits kommunizierte, stellte nicht nur die eigentlichen Skripte zur Diskussion. Mit ihrer entwaffnend ehrlichen, leidenschaftslosen Argumentation lieferte sie auch gleich drei mögliche Erklärungen für die Übermittlungen: Kamen sie aus dem Unterbewusstsein der Empfänger? Handelte es sich vielleicht um spontan ausgelöste ASW-Phänomene? Oder war die spiritistische These letztlich doch die überzeugendste? Die ausführlichen Analysen des Mediums sowie die im englischen Originaltext wiedergegebenen Skripte sind sowohl für Oscar Wilde-Fans als auch für alle Interessenten der Parapsychologie ein hochinteressantes Zeitdokument, dessen Thematik heute noch so aktuell (weil ungelöst) ist wie vor über 80 Jahren.
