It's endgame for a young woman as she and her executioner make a separate peace. APL presents the world premiere of Suzan-Lori Parks' Nov. 21 play. 10 minutes. This event is free and open to the public.

In November 2002, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks made a personal commitment to write a play a day for a year. On November 13, 2002 she began a cycle of 365 brilliant, inventive, and brief pieces, each a titled, complete play, ranging in length from three lines to three pages. Funny, edgy, absurd, and serious in equal measure, many are stand-alone plays; others are part of play-chains woven throughout the cycle. Thematically, the cycle explores (and even expands) the wide range of political and cultural themes found in her full-length work. From the disintegration of the nuclear family to the African-American experience to the mythology of the American Dream, her body of work forms a powerful critique of how Americans talk and think about themselves as individuals, and as a nation.
