Here is a collection intended to showcase Mavor Moore’s dramatic talent?these are theatre pieces stripped to the bare essentials of character sketches in quick, subtle lines; dramatic conflict, development and resolution with a minimum of props; and an emphasis on the performer’s resources as an actor, rather than the externals of scene changes and stage contexts. This collection includes his latest two-act play The Apology, and five one-act plays: The Store, The Pile, Getting In, The Argument and Come Away, Come Away. These plays have all been performed in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom.
