Description


Four riotous plays in one volume from a winner of an Outer Critics Circle Award: “A comic playwright of the first rank.”—New York Daily News

Renowned for his wicked camp humor and biting social satire, playwright and drag legend Charles Busch has delighted audiences both on and off Broadway. This book contains four of his works, among them Vampire Lesbians of Sodom, one of the longest-running plays in Off-Broadway history, of which the New York Times said “the female roles [Busch] creates are hilarious vamps, but also high comic characters…the audience laughs at the first line and goes right on laughing at every line to the end.”

Also included is the Tony-nominated Broadway hit The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife—a comedy about a self-absorbed Upper West Side woman whose life is devoted to mornings at the Whitney, afternoons at the Museum of Modern Art, and evenings at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, until her world is transformed by a visit from a childhood friend; The Lady in Question, a tribute to 1940s Hollywood that is both funny and suspenseful; and Psycho Beach Party, a cross between Gidget and Spellbound.
