What a great idea! So glad you did this. I hope it spawns a large and growing conversation.

At last we get a site dedicated to this very inspiring writer.

His plays came at a time in American history in which new forms were beginning to trying to break free of the realism that had dominated the stage for more than two decades. In his work in the 1950s in particular, we see the experimentation and rejection of realism that would become mainstream by the mid-sixties, but, regrettably, was sometimes too ahead of its time for critics. Throughout his work there is an ongoing exploration of the position of the individual within a stagnant society and the power of that person to change his or her environment through faith, imagination, and courage.

I have little knowledge of Mr. Nash, sadly, but I have read his novel titled Aphrodite's Cave and thought it a wonderful read.
