One of John Guare’s classic plays, Landscape of the Body tells the story of a woman’s unfulfilled life and premature death — and her reflections from the grave. Betty travels to New York to convince her sister Rosalie to leave her gritty New York City life and come home to bucolic Maine. After dying in a freak bicycle accident, Rosalie revisits the world she left behind. From the beyond Rosalie witnesses Betty effortlessly easing into her previous persona — moving into her apartment, taking over her job, but then Betty abruptly loses her teenage son to a gruesome murder. In a sardonic turn of events, Betty finds herself the primary suspect in her son’s death. Guare brilliantly moves back and forth in time and space to create and affecting study of the American dream gone awry.
  • I am going to Betty for my scene study at the conservatory so I am pretty excited to get my hands on this. Also, Betty's journey from Maine to NYC to passing through DC kind of touches me on a personal level so perhaps that is why I enjoyed this dark comedy a bit more than others. As for quality of the product, I received it fast via Prime and came in new condition as indicated.

  • The script is great, the layout of the book is awful.

  • Great (dark and interesting) play.

  • As advertised, thank you!

  • Think you have to be on something to enjoy this. Wish I didn't have to read it for class. ;(

  • P>The play is a dark comedy/murder mystery. A woman is accused of murdering her 14 year-old son, and an introspective investigation (guided by the suspect's deceased porn-star sister) is the plot of this play.
    The characters are diverse, from confused kids who seduce homosexuals and steal from them, to hard-core porn stars. From a Cuban transvestite to a deranged Ice-Cream man. The play does not by any means glorify the immorality portryayed in it, but still, it's not one for small kids.
    It takes a lot of thought, even soul-searching, to figure out the "meaning" of the play. Brilliantly, John Guare leaves this aspect pretty open-ended, so its open to a variety of interpretations. For instance, mine is rather pessimistic, but my director's is one of hope.
    I understand this is one of Guare's lesser-known works. I haven't read his other ones, but I'm told this is one of his best-written. I wouldn't call this play a "must-read" (which is why I give it four stars, instead of five) but it is an enjoyable one, one that could be an impetus for some serious introspection and soul-searching.
