Three new e-Scripts™ from Dramatists Play Service have been added to the growing library of recent Broadway hits now available for Scene Partner®. The new e-Scripts, OTHER DESERT CITIES by Jon Robin Baitz , THE MOUNTAINTOP by Katori Hall and THE LYONS, by Nicky Silver were part of the recent 2011 – 2012 Broadway season. They join current offerings THE COLUMNIST by David Auburn and GRACE by Craig Wright, both produced on Broadway during the last year. The titles are included in a new release by the Dramatists Play Service as part of the worldwide e-Script agreement with MyTheaterApps.com. They are available to actors and theaters for use in memorizing lines and mounting future theatrical productions of the plays.
The new e-Scripts include:
OTHER DESERT CITIES
A Tony Award Best Play Nominee and Pulitzer Prize Finalist. Brooke Wyeth returns home to announce that she is about to publish a memoir dredging up a pivotal and tragic event in the family's history - a wound they don't want reopened.
"Power, passion, and superbly crafted palaver stippled with blowdarts of wit - this is what Baitz does best."
– New York Magazine
On April 3, 1968, after delivering one of his most memorable speeches, an exhausted Dr. King retires to his room at the Lorraine Motel while a storm rages outside. When a mysterious stranger arrives with some surprising news, King is forced to confront his destiny and his legacy to his people.
"Even before the first flash of lightning - and there will be plenty of that before evening's end - an ominous electricity crackles through the opening moments of THE MOUNTAINTOP."
– NY Times
Nicky Silver's savagely funny new play about the dysfunctional Lyons family, nominated for Drama League, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards in 2012.
– Hollywood Reporter
