Drama. Sissy Boyd's IN THE PLAIN TURN OF THE BODY MAKE A SENTENCE contains two shorter plays, "Green Shoes," and "Then. The Body." "Green Shoes" was first presented in Silverlake, California in 2001, when it was an LA Weekly Pick of the Week. From "Green Shoes: " "Malvina lost her shoes. After she realized it she let goof Howard's hand. She just stood then, and he couldn't convince her to come away. He couldn't console her with the fact that the shoes were somewhere, not far away. It made no difference ot her. She asked Howard to describe the shoes, as though she'd never seen them." "Boyds two plays represent a serious investigation of form and technique. The delicacy and spirit of this writing is evident in each scene and on each page; a luminous and exact sense of how theatre actually works in three dimensional space."-John Steppling.
