“[Her] dialogue bristles with smart, eloquent talk…Ms. Ziegler’s quietly lyrical language has a luminous beauty, and her talent for creating characters whose complicated depths are just visible on their surfaces is still more remarkable.” (The New York Times)

This second play collection from one of America’s most successful theatre writers brings together four plays that offer differing perspectives on family and the human condition. Each play has enjoyed successful productions in cities across America, cementing Ziegler’s position as one of the world’s most exciting contemporary dramatists.

The Wanderers: A funny, insightful, and mysterious new drama explores the hidden connections between seemingly disparate people, drawing audiences into an intriguing puzzle and a deeply sympathetic look at modern love. “As perfect a piece of theater as I’ve seen in many years. The script by Anna Ziegler is a revelation, touching on family truths, marriage, and personal histories…Go see this show. It’s magnificent.” (DC Theatre Scene)

The Great Moment: A personal and poignant meditation on beginnings and endings, birth and age, and the moments of transition that mark our passage from life to death. “A reflection on family, love, life, expected loss, and the peculiarity of our relationship with time, The Great Moment blends moments of sweetness, sadness, nostalgia, delight, and humor to create a delightful evening of theater.” (Seattle Pockets)

Another Way Home: A funny, moving, and uplifting examination of what it means to be a family. “a laugh-packed serio-comedy that shoves family life under a microscope. The dialogue is ironic, sardonic, poignant, insightful and funny – with each sensation rapidly piling atop the next.” (Marinscope)

Actually: Investigates gender and race politics, our crippling desire to fit in, and the three sides to every story. “Gripping. Beautifully rendered and complex. Destined to trigger discussion.” (LA Times)
