    O'Grady is such a delightful master at personification. These characters are so funny and the dialogue is so fast and witty. I absolutely adore the tongue-in-cheek humor. O'Grady's plays are fantastic--if you've never read one, start here, and you won't want to stop!

    You're the book left behind. Poetry. And the hot new book comes in. This poetry book has got to spice up life a little - as there's constantly a new neighbor on the next shelf. This is a fun little story about how a book - maybe with a little more spunk than you thought - makes a moment for him/her self. Cute for a festival.

    Oh my, love! Our yearning to matter and leave behind our voice and impact on the world. Perfect for any book lover!

    A witty and profound story about yearning to be seen, yearning to be touched, yearning to matter, but, as time goes by, you've already gotten used to telling yourself "it's gonna be your turn, next time," and life goes on.

    What do the books we see in our local Barnes & Noble (or insert bookstore of your choice) really think about us and their own fates? What if you're the poetry book sitting on the shelves passed over, unread, and unbought? And who has it worse - you, or the YA pop culture action thriller who'll sell in minutes only to be forgotten, donated, or even recycled? In O'Grady's clever little play, I guess when you're the smart unpopular kid (I mean "book"), you don't mind shaking things up a little for the dumber popular kid (I mean "book").

    This is a lighthearted, fun little play with a bittersweet ending. This would make a nice addition to a short play festival and appeal to all audience ages.

    The loneliness of the poetry book. This is a fun play. Reads very quickly. If you've ever wanted to read a play with an illiterate book as a character, this is that play. O'Grady constructs and builds upon jokes very well. Would love to see this produced. Funny stuff.
