A collection of six plays, which are best described as shocking, sizzling and outrageous. Pinero finds comedy, hilarity, paradox and pathos in such unlikely places as subway toilets, pimp bars, drug "shooting galleries", crowded tenements and in the writer's own struggles with his Smith-Corona and penury.

We are open to plays that have been previously published but are out of print, to plays that have been produced, and to ones that have never been produced or published. Length can run up to 15, words.

They are examples of the importance of timing and dialogue in one-act, minute format plays. The subject matter of the works is light to the point of being cartoonish. "Words, words, words" is perhaps the best of the bunch but that is because most of the dialogue is lifted from other works (by Shakespeare, Swift and Kafka).4/5(21).
