42.Abuse Suxxx!!! and Other Plays, The Necessary Stage, 2016i<x Featuring five plays by Cultural Medallion recipient Haresh Sharma, created over a span of two decades, Abuse Suxxx!!! and Other Plays is an audacious collection that casts a spotlight on LGBT lives and issues explored in The Necessary Stage’s productions. Yet these plays go beyond being simply out, loud and proud. Rather, they deal with a range of topics—from dealing with death in Top or Bottom, to fissures within the community in Mardi Gras, to examining the limits of liberal ideals in ________ Can Change—and advocate tolerance and acceptance of difference in our midst. The collection also includes a foreword by Artistic Director Alvin Tan and an introduction by researcher Shawn Chua.Languages: EnglishDepartments: English Language and LiteratureCategories: Play
