On "The Night Alive"
"A beautiful new play. . . . There's not another dramatist
living who could pull off what McPherson] exercises so exquisitely
here. . . . Kindles a glow, both warming and chilling, you rarely
experience at the theater."--"The New York Times"

On "The Veil"
"Bold and intriguing . . . McPherson keeps you guessing to the
Tommy's not a bad man, he's just getting by--renting a decrepit
room in his Uncle Maurice's house and hopping from one
get-rich-quick scheme to the other. Then one day he comes to the
aid of the also-struggling Aimee, and together, they just might
make something--extraordinary--of their lives. With inimitable
warmth, style, and craft, "The Night Alive" deftly mines the
humanity to be found in the most unlikely of situations. Also
included in the volume is "The Birds," a suspenseful, atmospheric
adaptation of Daphne du Maurier's enthralling short story, and "The
Veil," set around a haunted house hemmed in by a restive, starving
populace, which weaves Ireland's troubled colonial past into a
riveting tale about the pursuit of love, the transcendental, and
the circular nature of time.
