Meghan Brown

This is Happening Now

At once funny, poetic, and achingly human, Meghan Brown’s characters navigate worlds both surreal and prosaic in these four one-act plays. In this collection, two would-be lovers find themselves caught in an endless loop of things left unsaid, a young girl on the cusp of adulthood stays stubbornly human as the rest of her small town turns animal, a furious Ophelia is reunited with Hamlet after 800 years in a Purgatory aquarium, and a clairvoyant dreamer explores the limitations of her own future.

In turns heart-wrenching and hilarious, this collection includes Jack’s Last Night in Town, Birds, Ophelia, and This Is Happening Now.
