Restless Spirits: Plays
Author: William S. Yellow Robe Jr.
Publisher: Excelsior Editions (2020)
"Restless Sprits is a collection of plays by contemporary Assiniboine playwright William S. Yellow Robe Jr. Comprising of one full-length and seven one acts plays, it reflects one of his most creative and productive periods. The selection was made by Yellow Robe in consultation with editor Jace Weaver, and none of the plays included have previously been published. The collection contains plays reflecting the range of Yellow Robe's work from tragedies to farce. They are unified by the fact that all have supernatural themes or significant elements. It includes Wood Bones, his most recent and highly successful full-length play. In his introduction, Weaver writes that the works in this volume clearly demonstrate that Yellow Robe is not just a great Native playwright, but a great American playwright in the company of David Mamet, Lynn Nottage, and Wallace Shawn. Noted American Indian playwright Hanay Geiogamah provides a foreword. In it, he calls this volume a gift to American theater"
