"If you put a gun onstage in Act I, it must go off by Act III."

-- Anton Chekhov

Karma's a bitch, as the hapless inhabitants of this knockabout comedy
are about to find out. In the course of an a La Ronde chain reaction,
an aspiring white rapper gains and loses a gun that continues to
change hands, scene by scene, on its way to fulfilling an
unanticipated destiny.

Steven Drukman's play IN THIS CORNER (about legendary boxer Joe
Louis) opened in January at San Diego's Old Globe Theatre. Other
produced plays include GOING NATIVE (Long Wharf Theatre), FLATTERY
WILL GET YOU (Connecticut Rep), COLLATERAL DAMAGE (Illusion Theatre,
Minneapolis), THE SNOWMAIDEN (Bob Hope Theatre, Dallas) and ANOTHER
FINE MESS (Portland Center Stage), which was nominated for the
Pulitzer Prize. He has been developed and/or commissioned by the Mark
Taper Forum, the Intiman Theatre, South Coast Rep, New York Theatre
Workshop, Playwrights Horizons, Sundance Theatre Lab and the
Williamstown Theatre Festival. Awards: Paul Green Award, Alfred P.
Sloan Award, Heinemann finalist, others. He wrote for many years for
The New York Times, was an Associate Editor of American Theatre
Magazine, and he just released his book of the edited screenplays of
Craig Lucas. He teaches playwriting at NYU.
