by Annie Baker
TCG is proud to publish our fifth book from Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Annie Baker. John takes place the week after Thanksgiving in a bed and breakfast in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. In this mysterious drama, a young couple struggles to stay together in a town steeped in historical turmoil. Annie Baker's compelling new work is revolutionary in theme and structure and challenges the boundaries of what theatre can be.

Edited by Caridad Svich
TCG is very excited to announce our second title in the new TCG Sourcebook series, Audience (R)Evolution: Dispatches from the Field, curated and edited by Caridad Svich. As Svich writes in the Introduction, "Throughout the pages of this collection, a wide range of voices sound the joy and fury of being in the trenches of the volatile discourse of enacting, staging, and sharing the experience of performance."

by Nilo Cruz
New from Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Nilo Cruz, this poetic and emotional work blends history and the modern world. A young researcher is eager to learn about 80-year-old Bemadette Kahn's long-lost lover, Ariel Strauss, who set sail in 1939 aboard the St. Louis, never to be seen again. With layered lyrical language and vibrant intimacy, Sotto Voce is an imaginative exploration of the power of memory, love, and human connection.

Adapted by Thornton Wilder
This is the first publication of this adaptation of A Doll's House as revitalized through the shrewd lens of American drama master Thornton WilderWith clarifying dialogue, Wilder uproots this classic from Norway and funnels it through an American lens. The marriage of Ibsen's naturalistic style melds with Wilder's knack for emotional nuance to create a demonstrative edition of the revered classic.

by Naomi Wallace
This "epic and poetic" play by award-winning playwright Naomi Wallace is her fourth title published by TCG (Time Out New York). On the docks of eighteenth-century Rhode Island, two runaway slaves plan a desperate and daring run to freedom. As the mysteries of their identities come to light, painful truths about the past and present collide. Told with lyricism and power, The Liquid Plain brings to life the people whose stories have been erased from history.
