The Strangerer and Spirits To Enforce

The Stranger is a masterful satire crossing the writings of Albert Camus and Edward Albee with the 2004 presidential debate between George Bush and John Kerry in Miami's convocation center.
Spirits To Enforce is a meta-adaptation of The Tempest with 12 Absurd Superheroes on 12 different phones collecting funds for their stage adaptation of The Tempest.


Reviews

...highly entertaining and thoroughly imaginative...
— The Shakespeare Review

...nothing short of brilliant...
The Chicago Reader Critic's Choice

...beyond brilliant... - Chicago Public Radio Critic's Pick Brilliant is a word to avoid.. 'Brilliant' should make you think of a gem - something that shines through cutting. The Strangerer is practically all sharp edge... a freakish, perfect, hilarious play.
Centerstage Chicago

SPIRITS TO ENFORCE ...with wry, speculative genius, Maher maps [The Tempest's] metaphors of abdication onto the text of his melancholy 'sequel' ...a dazling algebra of memory, identity, and the fluid but fixing cruelty of time. Chicago Reader critic's choice
