About the Plays:

Love and Anger was a finalist for the 1990 Governor General's Award for Drama

Where is the East End? It's where the sun comes up, and where you bury the dead. It's where George Walker set six of his plays. It's the Lower East Side of New York; down by the East River and East L.A It's where George Walker's settings have "come home."

From his offer of tenuous hope to the denizens of a city salvaged from the powerful and the greedy in Beautiful City (1987); to his championing of women in Love and Anger (the Acting Edition is currently out of print); to his explorations of sex and gender issues among three young people in Tough! (1993), George Walker continues his explorations of characters living in extremity in the arena of a political comedy uniquely his own.

What people say:

"Walker writes with unprecedented directness…[His] characters think and feel out loud in a perpetual present-tense fever because life, and often more, is on the line.." — Village Voice
