From Time Out New York:
"Gorgeous. Illuminating and heartbreaking. Rich in sympathy and humor, Indecent has the scope of an epic but the intimacy of a chamber piece...It celebrates and illustrates the power of theater."

When Sholem Asch wrote God of Vengeance in 1907, he didn't imagine the height of controversy the play would eventually reach. Performing at first in Yiddish and German, the play's subject matter wasn't deemed contentious until it was produced in English, when the American audiences were scandalized by the onstage depiction of an amorous affair between two women. Paula Vogel's newest work traces the trajectory of the show's success through its tour in Europe to its abrupt and explosive demise on Broadway in 1923--including the arrest of the entire production's cast and crew.
by Conor McPherson, with music and lyrics by Bob Dylan

In Girl from the North Country, Conor McPherson beautifully weaves the iconic songbook of Bob Dylan into a show full of hope, heartbreak and soul.

Duluth, Minnesota. 1934. A community living on a knife-edge. Lost and lonely people huddle together in the local guesthouse. The owner, Nick, owes more money than he can ever repay, his wife Elizabeth is losing her mind, and their daughter Marianne is carrying a child no one will account for. So when a preacher selling bibles and a boxer looking for a comeback turn up in the middle of the night, things spiral beyond the point of no return...
by David Adjmi

TCG is excited to announce the publication of the dual volume of Marie Antoinette/3C by David Adjmi. Drawing comparison of the gluttonous excess of France's royals just before the Revolution to the decadent materialĀ­ism of the present day, Marie Antoinette holds up a mirror to our contemporary society, which just might be entertaining itself to death. Inspired by 1970s sitcoms and 1950s existentialist comedy, 3C is a terrifying yet amusing look at a culture that likes to amuse itself--even as it teeters on the brink of ruin.

These fabulous new titles come from our Partner Publishers  -- all of whom are distributed by TCG and can be found in our  online bookstore.
