Vol.2: In contrast with the first volume, the second is devoted to new mythologies and social forces. The included plays explore three American archetypal pursuits of happiness: the glory of the lone individual, the glamour of Hollywood and the magic lure of Space. Billy the Kid Metal Woman Tin Can Man The folk hero BILLY THE KID defies the controls of a stagnant order- and the system strikes back, predictably, until a modern day `Billy' cuts up and renews the myth so the hero can live to fight another day. The America of Hollywood and glamour, illusion and image runs head-on into the America of idealist seekers after freedom and significance in the comedy of METAL WOMAN. Can everyone get what they want? In America-maybe! The TIN CAN MAN shakes, rattles and rolls searching every dead-end alley and winds up on the threshold of the post-nihilist space age, disillusioned with every tried prescription for meaning, looking for the new frontier in which to "build a world closer to our hearts' desire".
