Albert Bermel writes comedies with a dark twist. The Times of London hailed Bermel's Workout as one of the most expert pieces of comic writing to come out of America for some time. This volume includes nine witty, suspenseful plays - six of them full length, three short. Bermel's plays and translations have been performed throughout the world, including the Royal Court Theatre in London; Spoleto Festival, Italy; and on Broadway. Thrombo, a food farce, is set in a fictional African nation; Shoots, in a Hollywood agent's office; Several other plays offer actors meaty historical roles - the charismatic king Charlemagne in One Leg Over the Wrong Wall; in Herod the Great, a towering figure and an Arab who became king of the Jews; and hot-tempered Alexandre Dumas in The Dumas Inheritance, to name but a few. The short plays - Body Chop, Stumped, and Snipers - are chilling entertainments, a heady mix of comedy and violence. As one New York critic put it, Snipers is brilliant... a gem of a one-act . . . a tale of subtle horror... Bermel's text is devastating poetry.

"I'd like to say I am extremely pleased with the service your company has provided me. I'll be receiving my new Sonor Force tomorrow and am very excited. This shopping experience has been pleasant and satisfying. The price was killer and the kit will be awesome. Also, sending me the drum heads I wanted free of charge was an unexpected bonus that I will never forget."
