For nearly twenty-five years, poets, writers, artists, actors, directors, and an ever-growing audience have flocked to New York’s landmark Nuyorican Poets Cafe, a breeding ground and showcase for some of the most original and energetic new works of theater being produced today, as well as a community gathering place. Now, for the first time, twenty original plays, monologues, and performance pieces that debuted at the Nuyorican are gathered together in Action, edited by Cafe founder Miguel Algarin and codirector Lois Griffith.
