Where Do We Live and Other Plays

Christopher Shinn,


This anthology marks the emergence of one of the finest and most innovative new artists writing for the theatre today. “The secret of Shinn’s success is in the way he exploits the dramatic gap between what is said and that which is left unsaid…writing like this is rare,” said the London Independent. Where Do We Live, the title play, was written shortly after 9/11 and though never referenced, it still haunts this chronicle of the struggles of several aspiring and gifted young New Yorkers on the Lower East Side. Like all his work, it is a deeply affecting story of how we define our lives and our place in the world.

Other plays in this volume include:

The Coming World: “Shinn certainly looks like a shining prospect for the future.”—Daily Telegraph

Four: “Nothing is simple emotionally. The play keeps delivering small shocks and aches that end in a standoff, or maybe in that pause between despair, resignation, and a twinge of hope. Haunting.”—Margo Jefferson, New York Times

Other People: “Shinn writes with graceful compassion about people trapped inside their own skins unable to make sense of their lives.”—The Guardian

What Didn’t Happen: " about the distance between people, and the ways in which even friends, spouses and lovers are ultimately unknowable to one another…a playwright to cherish.”—New York Times
