These plays were written with the feeling of jazz, which has been my life long profession and love. Not that the music in them is jazz, but the with a feeling of spontaneity, which is the way they should be performed.

Not that the music in them is jazz, but the with a feeling of spontaneity, which is the way they should be performed. With the feel of improvisation. Minimal sets, cubes of different sizes that can be moved by the actors in scene changes. Making much use of creative lighting and sound design. My plays have no heroes - meaning that all the characters are victims, virgins to the lines they speak. The feeling that they have never been said before and will never be said again. Blocking should be simple, we dont want to wear out the floor. I do write about the Underbelly of Humanity. Growing up in New York City has left its forever mark on me. The beautiful, sometimes brilliant, sometimes dangerous, anti-heroes have given me their forgotten gifts. These plays are my payback to them, who unknowingly gave me so much, with their beauty, humor and danger. Most, or all of them are gone, the house wreckers and mind fuckers as we called them on the lower east side of New York. I dedicate these plays to them. Stephen Goldberg
