Plays in Time
Distributed for Intellect Ltd
310 pages | 32 color plates | 7 x 9
Plays in Time collects four plays by Karen Malpede set during influential events from the late twentieth century to the present: the Bosnian war and rape camps; the invasion and occupation of Iraq and Israel’s 2006 bombardment of Lebanon; 9/11 and the US torture program; and the heroism of climate scientists facing attack from well-funded climate change deniers. In each play in this anthology, nature, poetry, ritual, and empathy are presented in contrast to the abuse of persons and world. Despite their serious topics, the plays are full of humor and distinctively entertaining personalities.
Each play was developed by Theater Three Collaborative for production in New York and internationally in Italy, Australia, London, Berlin, and Paris.
Discount price is $20.00, if you live in neighborhood and the book can be delivered. Payment by paypal at www.theaterthreecollaborative.org or mail Theater Three Collaborative, 372 Dekalb Ave., #1J, Brooklyn, NY 11205

I build high-end custom applications and websites, both freelance and with my company ATTCK. Depending on the size of the project, I have options for both medium-sized and larger projects.
Consultations are free. Projects vary with size and complexity, but I will make recommendations based on budget to get you the most value for your dollar - investing in tech should make you more money, not drain it. I'm not afraid to turn a project down if I think it will be a poor investment for you.
Drop me an email, let's talk. My personal sites are below, along with my Twitter and LinkedIn info.

Every morning we set the table, but not to eat. We set the table for work. The coffee is ready, the stationary is placed at each setting, pens are at the ready, the sound machines are on, the power-strips are close, and the Internet is revved up. We create a scene for you to be comfortable and productive.
Do you know someone who could use the right space to inspire that next project? Give them their first month and they'll probably dedicate the book to you!
