KIRKUS REVIEW

Four short plays by novelist John Hawkes ""luminous with atrocity""...presenting ""an inscape of wonder in a landscape of mutilations,"" in the words of Herbert Blau, who was heading the Actor's Workshop in San Francisco with Jules Irving when Hawkes joined them as a writer in residence on a Ford Foundation fellowship. ""Innocence is on the limb, ripe for perversion"" in The Innocent Party, The Questions, The Wax Museum, The Undertaker. Mr. Blau concludes, ""Terror be praised, it's a pleasure to read some plays that sing. It makes them worth imagining in the theater.
