American Standard & The Princess Of Rome, Ohio: Two Plays, Jonathan Joy

Theses, Dissertations and Capstones

From the back roads of Eastern Kentucky to the front porch of a southern Ohio home comes this collection of full length comedic plays by Jonathan Joy. Join two rural State Senate candidates (one Republican and one Democrat) forced to travel the campaign trail together in the political farce American Standard. Or see the world of dysfunctional family politics through the eyes of a fourteen year old girl in The Princess of Rome, Ohio. Also, trace the development of both works, from inception to production, in commentary that focuses on the process of writing for the stage.
