About the Book:

Shorter, Faster, Funnier is a hilarious collection of forty-four brief comic plays and monologues by David Ives, Christopher Durang, Mary Louise Wilson, Mark O'Donnell, Warren Leight, and many more.

This cornucopia of comedy showcases works by major playwrights and emerging young writers, with casts of all sizes and diverse and challenging roles for actors of every age and type. You’ll discover such colourful characters as a businessman free-falling from a plane, an embittered sword swallower, a punkish girl skateboarder, and retirees in post-apocalyptic Siberia, alongside plays that unleash the humor in high school reunions, alien invasions, office cubicle farms, and even post-Katrina New Orleans. Perfect for actors, students, theatre lovers, and comedy fans, Shorter, Faster, Funnier covers the spectrum of humour, from slyly witty to over-the-top outrageous.
