Shared Stages brings together ten of the best contemporary American plays that dramatize the explosive relationship of two tightly knit peoples - Blacks and Jews - in American society. Including works such as Driving Miss Daisy, I'm Not Rappaport, Fires in the Mirror, and Medal of Honor Rag, this collection deftly explores the interwoven destinies of Blacks and Jews through the civil rights movement, the Vietnam War, the women's movement, and the renewal of urban conflict. Together, these plays reveal initially unequal relationships between master and servant, doctor and patient, lawyer and client, but new stories ultimately emerge about who these characters have become, how they relate to each other, and what the future might hold for them - and for us.--BOOK JACKET.
