Humana 2006: The Complete Plays collects all ten plays produced at Actors Theatre of Louisville during the 30th anniversary season of the Humana Festival of New American Plays. The seven full-length plays and three ten-minute plays in this anthology encompass many of the most eclectic and exciting new voices in theater today -- from a technology-reliant man learning to listen to a planet on the verge of apocalypse ( Natural Selection ); to a left-leaning American citizen's doomed chance to give the President an earful ( Listeners ); to a group of Depression-era men who put on a fundraiser, and in the process find themselves transformed by more than just the ladies' costumes they don ( Act A Lady ). Alternately painful, subversive, hysterically funny, and poignant, these plays ask you to engage with characters and worlds you think you know, and then look again with new eyes.

Includes the plays Three Guys and a Brenda by Adam Bock, Natural Selection by Eric Coble, Low by Rha Goddess, Act A Lady by Jordan Harrison, Sovereignty by Rolin Jones, Listeners by Jane Martin, Hotel Cassiopeia by Charles L. Mee, The Scene by Theresa Rebeck, Six Years by Sharr White, Neon Mirage by Liz Duffy Adams, Dan Dietz, Rick Hip-Flores, Julie Jensen, Lisa Kron, Tracey Scott Wilson, and Chay Yew
