Title: 365 Days - 365 Plays
Author: Parks, Suzan-Lori
Price: $29.95

unique, year-long play cycle from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Topdog/Underdog.

On November 13 2002, Suzan-Lori Parks had an idea to write a play every day for a year. She began that very day, finishing one year later. The result is an extraordinary testament to artistic commitment.

This collection of 365 impeccably crafted pieces, each with its own distinctive characters and dramatic power, is a complete work by an artist responding to her world, each and every day. Parks is one of the American theatre's most innovative writers, and her 'stark but poetic language and fiercely idiosyncratic images transform her work into something haunting and marvelous' TIME

'Every day I would wake up and ask myself, "Ok, so what's the play?" and I wrote what came. The plan was that no matter what I did, how busy I was, what other commitments I had, I would write a play a day, every single day, for a year. It would be about being present and being committed to the artistic process every single day, regardless of the "weather". It became a daily meditation, a daily prayer celebrating the rich and strange process of a writing life' Suzan-Lori Parks

'Suzan-Lori Parks is one of the most important dramatists America has produced' Tony Kushner
