By Raffi Arzoomanian, Foreword by Howard Stein
In these plays: Lady Esther, The Coop, The Moths, and Ellis Island 101, Arzoomanian creates a population of "fascinating personalities and characters," as Howard Stein notes in his foreword. "Great value exists in the environment in which they struggle for 'survival with dignity,' These plays have inherent excitement, abandon, and zest. They are appropriate reflections of the writer's own Faulknerian county. what has followed these works has been of keen interest ... plays that thrust upon a reader or a theater audience a vision of life packed with joy, playfulness, mischief and an intense awareness of human limits. All of us are richer because of his poems."
