"Lucas' musings about the tenacious grip of memory on a troubled mind resonate with lyric urgency."—Variety
Prolific playwright Craig Lucas creates a web of comedic coincidence and missed connections in The Singing Forest. Though the play is a farce, Lucas' characters demonstrate the complexity and depth of the human psyche—both in the chaotic present and within the troubled memory of the past.
Craig Lucas's plays include Ode to Joy, Missing Persons, Reckless, Blue Window, Prelude to a Kiss, God's Heart, The Dying Gaul, Stranger, Prayer for My Enemy, Small Tragedy, and the book for The Light in the Piazza (music and lyrics by Adam Guettel).
