Over a brief, 12-year career, Iranian-born, New York–based director and playwright Reza Abdoh (1963–95) broke all of the conventions of American theater, pushing actors and audiences past their limits to create hallucinatory dreamscapes shot through with humor, song and spirituality. His productions addressed the bitter political realities of his time—the systemic devaluation of black life, governmental indifference to the AIDS crisis, sexual repression, genocide in Europe and war in the Middle East—with harrowing eloquence. Just before his death he ordered that his plays never be performed again.

Profusely illustrated, Reza Abdoh is a major monograph on one of the most influential theater artists of the latter 20th century. The book contains new essays on Abdoh’s works in theater, film and video, published and unpublished interviews with the director, conversations with his friends and colleagues, scripts of Abdoh’s plays and contemporary reviews.
