Thrombo and Other Plays
(Performing Books, 2012)

This collection includes nine suspenseful, darkly comic plays, six of them full length, three short. They include Thrombo: A Food Farce, set in a fictional African nation; Shoots, featuring an array of literary roles performed in a Hollywood agent’s office; and Give and Grab, about a tough British merchant who tries to befriend Gypsies. The other three full-length plays feature historical roles: the charismatic king Charlemagne in One Leg Over the Wrong Wall; Herod the Great in The Arab Jew; and Alexandre Dumas in The Dumas Inheritance. The short plays are Body Chop, Stumped, and Snipers. Albert Bermel is professor emeritus of theatre at Lehman College and the Graduate Center.
