David Rabe is one of America's finest dramatists. In A Question of Mercy, he explores the controversial and emotional issue of euthanasia, delving deep into the ties that bind friends and lovers. Thomas and Anthony are lovers struggling with Anthony's final, exhausting battle with AIDS. Joined by their friend Susanah and a retired doctor, whose help Thomas has requested , they fashion a heartbreaking friendship as they work through the stages of a plan to relieve Anthony of his illness and his life. Rabe creates a passionate depiction of four people confronted with the reality of a loved one's fight with death, and a compelling dramatic event that poses the question: "What would you do?"

Theatre: Its Art and Craft is an introductory theatre text focusing on theatre practitioners and their processes. Using an accessible tone and a focused exploration of how theatre artists work, the book covers playwrights; directors, actors; designers of sets, costumes, props, lights, sound, and new technology; as well as the varying roles of scholars, critics, and dramaturgs. Appropriate for beginning theatre majors, minors, or nonmajors, Theatre: Its Art and Craft helps students understand how theatre happens, who makes it, and what they do. The sixth edition has been updated with new statistics, references, and photographs. It also features an extensively revised design section, which the authors have divided into two parts: one focused on the tactile elements of design (sets, costumes, props) and the second on the temporal elements (lights, sound, and new technologies).
