The third volume in the successful Theatre Café series contains three contemporary European plays in English translation. All fairly short two-handers, the plays make a great volume for teachers and students looking for suitable material to work on in schools, colleges, and youth theatre groups. The volume contains: Clyde and Bonnie by Holger Schober (translated by Zoe Svendsen) Mothers, hide your children! Fathers, hide your savings! Clyde and Bonnie are back in town! A brief synopsis of what happened before: Clyde, whose real name is Werner, and Bonnie, which is her real name - parents can be so cruel - meet each other, fall in love, and start robbing banks. On the occasion of their 10th bank robbery, Bonnie gets shot and killed. Clyde takes refuge in a bar and is actually still sitting there. So much for part one. But what Clyde did not know is that he and Bonnie have a daughter, who is now 16 and somehow feels that she doesn't fit in with the family she lives with. She doesn't know that they are her foster family. If the first part of the play was a love story, then the second is the story of a father and a daughter: An evening about responsibility, love and also about how to stay cool when the cops are hot on your heels. The play won the Austrian Theatre for Young People award ‘Stella’ in two categories (incl best production in Theatre for Young People), 2009. Helver’s Night (Polish) by Ingmar Villqist (Translated by Jacek Laskowski) Helver’s Night is an expressionist drama about the relationship between Carla and her young charge, Helver. Helver is fascinated by fascism – not by the ideology, which he is unable to grasp, but by the show-off aspects of the movement. In the end he becomes a victim of this fascination. Busstopkisser (German) by Ralf N.Höhfeld (Translated by Vanessa Fagan) A boy. A girl. A bus stop. 18 Kisses over 18 months. Coffee and conversation by candlelight, a picnic under the Eiffel Tower. Then the girl vanishes. But was she ever really there? Can anyone without an email address or mobile phone actually be real? A funny, unusual take on the classic boy-meets-girl scenario, Busstopkisser takes the audience on a mind-bending tweet-sized journey through adolescent romance.

Mariposa Road

After breakfast in Bailey at the Cutthroat Cafe, we went in search of Mead's wood-nymph, just as Mom and I had forty-five years before.

An account of a cross-country adventure chasing butterflies: “Armchair travelers who love a good yarn will find Pyle’s exuberance catching.” —Seattle Times Part road-trip tale, part travelogue of lost and found landscapes, all good-natured natural history, Mariposa Road tracks Bob Pyle’s journey across the United States as he races against the calendar in his search for as many of the eight hundred American butterflies as he can find. Like Pyle’s classic Chasing Monarchs, Mariposa Road recounts his adventures, high and low, in tracking down butterflies in his own low-tech, individual way. Accompanied by Marsha, his cottonwood-limb butterfly net; Powdermilk, his 1982 Honda Civic with 345,000 miles on the odometer; and the small Leitz binoculars he has carried for more than thirty years, Bob ventured out in a series of remarkable trips from his Northwest home. From the California coastline in company with overwintering monarchs to the Far Northern tundra in pursuit of mysterious sulphurs and arctics; from the zebras and daggerwings of the Everglades to the leafwings, bluewings, and border rarities of the lower Rio Grande; from Graceland to ranchland and Kauai to Key West, these intimate encounters with the land, its people, and its fading fauna are wholly original. At turns whimsical, witty, informative, and inspirational, Mariposa Road is an extraordinary journey of discovery that leads the reader ever farther into butterfly country and deeper into the heart of the naturalist. “What Roger Tory Peterson was for birds, Bob Pyle is for butterflies . . . From the dusty heat of Texas and the tropical lushness of Hawaii to the legendary outhouse of the Midnight Sun in the Alaskan Arctic, Pyle is a traveling companion who never grows dull.” —Scott Weidensaul, author of Of a Feather

The End-No it isnt! During the fall of 1969 Daniel Dyer stands alone at a still point between the disappointments of his childhood and an incredibly uncertain future. He is a boy from Yorkshire, living in America who has been abandoned by his father and then his mother and has signed up to fi ght with the US army in Vietnam. The Far Out Cafe is full of characters and events: a blues singer, a Cuban called Guerrero and another called Compay, with his head full of conspiracy theories, Birdmen, a chapel dating back to the 2nd century, an isolated island, a pack of marauding sharks; one of mythical proportions, a psychotic Soviet called the Generali, a barbaric guard called Rusanov and his syphilitic assistant, Yefrem. This is not merely a story about the atrocities of war. Its a story about who Daniel meets when he has been left for dead; a boy called Angel and a girl called Beth. Its about the way we live our lives and what happens when we place our Faith in God when things go horribly wrong. Its a savage yet tenderly lyrical story about an unforgiving time and indestructible love. I sat down, cleared my mind, and The Far Out Caf blew it apart. Its a really great story and its told in such a surreal way, it messes with your head so much, delightfully so, but what really caught me is the sense of magic and mysticism that is woven into the story. A huge story that has roots in an even greater and deeper meaning. The spiritual clashed against the brutality of men is incredibly powerful. Good to fi nally be challenged by a modern book that gives the mind a great workout. In fi lm terms, very Stanley Kubrick - David Popescu - Hooligan Filmworks, Canada

Set in the glamorous world of Bollywood, Kushi Café’s cuisine is a heady mix of ambition, office politics, intrigues, and intricate relationships. Akansha persuades her mother to allow her to leave their small town and go work as a shop assistant in Mumbai while she secretly has plans of becoming an actress and perhaps meeting her heartthrob, Mega Star Aslam Khan. All Deep wants to do is to be just like his father and join the police force. But fate has other plans for him, and he finds himself thrust into the center of the entertainment industry. Clever and ambitious Parvez, the head of UFCL, a successful film production house, is a powerful presence in the industry and is always one step ahead of his crafty competitor Dheeraj, who was his former employee. Namit and Jivan try to maintain the flimsy foothold that they have managed to gain in the Hindi film industry. Rolls appears far too laid-back to survive the cutthroat competition while Jenny wants to move on and is determined to leave her past behind. It’s the book to curl up with on a lazy Sunday afternoon with a hot cappuccino or cold frappé. The Kushi Café beckons with its eclectic clientele and cozy ambiance.

There is no substitute for good coffee, good planning and careful consideration. This book is not designed to discourage anyone from entering the industry who truly believe the industry is suitable for them. It is designed however, to provide insight into what is involved and to encourage the reader to question his or her motives and in so doing, question their reasoning and expectations. Virgins Guide should serve as an education tool and a handbook to aid you on your journey. After reading this book you will have a deeper appreciation of what those trying to establish a small cafe business should consider, along with a greater understanding of what lays ahead. If you remain determined, I wish you the best of luck and truly hope that you achieve your dreams, I have experienced tremendous highs and deeply depressing lows. I humbly wish only to relay my experiences with the aid of hindsight, a valuable ingredient that the beginner cannot possibly possess.

This book reclaims for Wales the history and culture of a music that eventually emerged as jazz in the 1920s, its tendrils and roots extending back to slave songs and abolition campaign songs, and Swansea’s long-forgotten connection with Cincinnati, Ohio. The main themes of the book are to illustrate and emphasise the strong links between emerging African American music in the USA and the development of jazz in mainstream popular culture in Wales; the emancipation and contribution of Welsh women to the music and its social-cultural heritage; and an historical appraisal as the music journeyed towards the Second World War and into living memory. The jazz story is set amid the politics, socio-cultural and feminist history of the time from whence the music emerged – which begs the question ‘When Was Jazz?’ (to echo Gwyn A. Williams in 1985, who asked ‘When Was Wales?’). If jazz is described as ‘the music of protest and rebellion’, then there was certainly plenty going on during the jazz age in Wales.

These proceedings are an outcome of a symposium and workshop held June 2-5, 1998 in Albuquerque, NM. Hosted by the USDA Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Bosque Improvement Group, in collaboration with numerous partners from a variety of sectors, the symposium was designed to report on current research and development activities in the Middle Rio Grande Basin. The purpose of the meeting was to share information and develop ideas for sustaining and conserving Middle Rio Grande Basin ecosystems, especially those from Cochiti Dam to Elephant Butte Reservoir. Experts were invited to contribute oral presentations, posters, and papers that addressed five Basin themes. Theme one's session was designed to identify methods and opportunities to enhance communication and collaboration among researchers, managers, and communities. A second theme explored ideas and approaches for conserving water and riparian resources in relation to human needs and population growth. Theme three discussed how watershed processes form linkages and influence management of upland and river resources. A fourth session identified methods and strategies for restoring and monitoring basin ecosystems and discussed project successes and failures. Theme five reported on status of endangered and sensitive species, biological diversity, and opportunites for restoring and managing habitats to recover species. Management and understanding of the Middle Rio Grande Basin's natural resources and ecosystems require communication and cooperation of partners across cultural, landowner, and organizational boundaries. To produce a shared understanding of the current state and desired future state of the Middle Rio Grande Basin and to outline the steps needed to move toward the desired future, a facilitated workshop was held the last day of the conference. The results of this workshop are reported in the concluding section of this proceedings. The technical coordinators of the symposium and proceedings wish to acknowledge all the partners who have contributed to the research, restoration, technology development, educational outreach, and special events and activities designed to improve human and ecosystem conditions in the Basin. We hope this volume captures at least some of the excitement, ideas, and productivity generated by Basin projects over the past several years.

Cities are home to over fifty percent of the world's population, a figure which is expected to increase enormously by 2050. Despite the growing demand on urban resources and infrastructure, food is still often overlooked as a key factor in planning and designing cities. Without incorporating food into the design process – how it is grown, transported, and bought, cooked, eaten and disposed of – it is impossible to create truly resilient and convivial urbanism. Moving from the table and home garden to the town, city, and suburbs, Food and Urbanism explores the connections between food and place in past and present design practices. The book also looks to future methods for extending the 'gastronomic' possibilities of urban space. Supported by examples from places across the world, including the UK, Norway, Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Romania, Australia and the USA, the book offers insights into how the interplay of physical design and socio-spatial practices centred around food can help to maintain socially rich, productive and sustainable urban space. Susan Parham brings together the latest research from a number of disciplines – urban planning, food studies, sociology, geography, and design – with her own fieldwork on a range of foodscapes to highlight the fundamental role food has to play in shaping the urban future.
