Before publishing his celebrated first novel, Horse Crazy, in 1987, Gary Indiana wrote and directed twelve plays for an informal company whose performers included the painter Bill Rice, composer Evan Lurie, the poet George-Therese Dickenson, writer and film actress Cookie Mueller, Warhol superstar and painter Viva, writer Victoria Pedersen, singer/actress Sharon Niesp, photographer Allen Frame, the legendary Taylor Mead, novelist Larry Mitchell, and others. Performed at the Mudd Club, Club 57, The Performing Garage, and Bill Rices E. 3rd Street studio, Indianas plays offered a kind of community theater for New Yorks underground.This volume presents highlights of that repertoire, including Alligator Girls Go to College, The Roman Polanski Story, and Indianas script for Michel Auders videofilm A Coupla White Faggots Sitting Around Talking, accompanied by archival performance photographs and selections from Indianas contemporaneous journals and poems.

These hilarious, incisive writings and scripts evoke a vivid and accurate portrait of writers and artists in the lower Manhattan of the 1980s--arguably Americas last avant-garde--and anticipates Indianas impressive subsequent literary career.
