PASSING THROUGH FROM EXOTIC PLACES
(Three dramatic tales of America in conflict with itself in the third quarter of the 20th century)
“PASSING THROUGH FROM EXOTIC PLACES is far and away the best and most moving play I have seen this year on B’way or off. It is a brilliant evening in the theatre!” — Stewart Klein, WNEW.TV
“Ribman’s triple bill has many and varied merits. The writing in the last play is brilliant…Vincent Gardenia’s virtuoso tirade that ends the evening was rewarded with loud cheers from the audience.” — Clive Barnes, The New York Times
“Three out of three is a helluva batting average. Each play succeeds in gaining your attention immediately and holding it until it socks home its point.” — Silver, Daily News
“All Hail Ronald Ribman! This play makes him one of the most significant young playwrights in America.” — Emory Lewis
“Ronald Ribman is one of the most talented of today’s young American playwrights…In this period of sloppy playwriting when awareness of production is causing the unhappy side-effect of disinterest in words, authors like Ronald Ribman must be treasured. ‘Passing Through From Exotic Places’ is his first work produced by the commercial theater…it is superior theater—dramatic, exciting, funny and original.” — Martin Gottfried, Women’s Wear Daily
THE SON WHO HUNTED TIGERS IN JAKARTA: an apparent burglar invades the home of a suburban couple and won’t rest until he goads the homeowner into taking his life.
SUNSTROKE: Arthur Goldblatt, an eager, pudgy Peace Corps youth, arrives on a Pacific Island to begin his tour, replacing an eccentric couple who have somehow misconceived their mission, turning the outpost into an antebellum Southern plantation, Tomqualaturatu into Tom.
