August 2005 - Booklist

"Don't let the title of this collection fool you. These plays are not yesteryear's news. They are vivid, important pieces, as relevant, readable, and stageworthy today as they were two-plus years ago, when first produced. They include plays that dramatize problems tearing at our social fabric, such as Tim Dowlin's fine, powerful, if sometimes melodramatic Corner Wars, which chronicles the world of street-corner hustling in the inner city, as well as work written in a much more entertaining key, such as David Epstein's Midnight, a witty period comedy set in the 1950s. Though none of the playwrights in this collection are household names yet, or close to it, all of them write the kind of vivid, well-crafted work that deserves attention. Dowlin's pitch-perfect ear for street slang, alone, makes his play worth a look. "
