Liars, Thieves and Other Sinners on the Bench

By Jo Carson

Paperback £16.99

'Human experience is varied and astonishing,' notes Jo Carson, 'and this is a taste.'

A uniquely American writer and performer, Carson has spent fifteen years working with peoples' stories in communities across America, crafting more than thirty plays from the oral histories she has collected.

In performance, these works have illuminated and invigorated the communities in which they were forged, as the people see themselves onstage in a new light.

Jo Carson is a writer and performer living in John City, Tennessee. She has published award-winning plays, short stories, children's books, essays, poems, and other works.
