About the playwright:
Constance Congdon has been called "one of the best playwrights our country and our language has ever produced" by playwright Tony Kushner [Angels in America] in Kushner's introduction to her collection Tales of the Lost Formicans and Other Plays. In addition to Tales of the Lost Formicans, which has had more than 300 productions worldwide, Congdon's plays include: Casanova, Dog Opera (both produced at the Public Theatre), Losing Father's Body (Portland Stage - Maine), Lips (Primary Stages), Native American (Portland Stage - Maine, Lyric Hammersmith Studio), The Children of the Elvi (Key City Public Theater), A Mother, starring Olympia Dukakis, and a new verse version of The Misanthrope, both commissioned and produced by American Conservatory Theater. Congdon is Playwright-in-Residence at Amherst College.
