In this anthology of plays by young emerging playwrights--Joseph Aragon "(To Forgive, Divine), "Ginny Collins "(The Good Daughter)," Rose Condo "(pyg)," David Ferber "(PACT"), and Primrose Madayag Knazan "(Shades of Brown)"--five exciting new voices tackle themes of forgiveness, teen suicide, self-image, cultural assimilation, and rum running on the prairies. "To Forgive, Divine" challenges the Christian principal of redemption as it affects a mother and daughter trying to find their way back to each other; "Shades of Brown" uses the Filipino immigration experience to explore cultural assumptions, interracial dating, racism, and that elusive sense of belonging that we call 'home'; "The Good Daughter" dives deep into the delicious genre of black comedy, exposing a highly dysfunctional family of three women running rum on the prairies; "PACT" looks at teenage suicide with a darkly hilarious, disturbing, and ultimately hopeful effect; and "pyg" tells the funny and touching story of one woman's struggle with loneliness and the relentlessly impossible ideals our culture's media imposes on us. "Breakout" takes the reader on a journey through the minds of five young and vibrant voices, capturing the angst and humour and heart of a generation of playwrights grappling with that precipice between the teen years and adulthood.
