The inaugural anthology of one of the first playwrights of the Hip-Hop Generation. "The best of the shape-shifting solo performers who brought multiethnic New York to the stage in the nineties."? Time Out New York "Mr. Hoch is a specialist . . . channeling the restless souls of the dispossessed and the marginalized since the early 1990s, becoming a boiling one-man melting pot."? The New York Times Celebrated among peers like Eric Bogosian, John Leguizamo, and Anna Deavere Smith, Danny Hoch is one of the most powerful solo performers and talented monologists of his time. Capturing the voices of a multicultural city and a hip-hop politic with an ironic social lens and linguistic bravado, he has given expression to language and stories that were previously absent from the American canon. This unprecedented anthology contains three of the celebrated performer's most acclaimed solo works-- Taking Over; Jails, Hospitals & Hip-Hopand Some People--the long-awaited ensemble play Till the Break of Dawnand the one-act Up Against the Wall, a repeat favorite of universities and high schools. Danny Hochis an actor, playwright and director of both stage and film whose works have garnered awards such as a Guggenheim Fellowship, two Obies, two Sundance Fellowships and a Tennessee Williams Fellowship. In 2000 Mr. Hoch founded the Hip-Hop Theater Festival which has since presented over 100 Hip-Hop Generation plays from around the globe and now appears annually in several American cities.
