In this anthology of plays by young emerging playwrights-Joseph Aragon (To Forgive, Divine), Ginny Collins (The Good Daughter), Rose Condo (pyg), David Ferber (PACT), and Primrose Madayag Knazan (Shades of Brown)-five exciting new voices tackle themes of forgiveness, teen suicide, self-image, cultural assimilation, and rum running on the prairies. To Forgive, Divine challenges the Christian principal of redemption as it affects a mother and daughter trying to find their way back to each other; Shades of Brown uses the Filipino immigration experience to explore cultural assumptions, interracial dating, racism, and that elusive sense of belonging that we call 'home'; The Good Daughter dives deep into the delicious genre of black comedy, exposing a highly dysfunctional family of three women running rum on the prairies; PACT looks at teenage suicide with a darkly hilarious, disturbing, and ultimately hopeful effect; and pyg tells the funny and touching story of one woman's struggle with loneliness and the relentlessly impossible ideals our culture's media imposes on us. Breakout takes the reader on a journey through the minds of five young and vibrant voices, capturing the angst and humour and heart of a generation of playwrights grappling with that precipice between the teen years and adulthood.
