Sexual repression, familial bonding, and the fractured roles of identity in post-modern society make up the themes of the collection of original plays included in Crosstown Traffic by Jay Amari. In Cloudy All Day a man and a woman re-evaluate their relationship in a past steeped in taboo; In The Greatest a father tells his son a bed time story, explaining his own life choices and to impart a sense of myth for the boy to found his own life on; In Crosstown Traffic an older man and a younger man struggle to claim some nebulous talent to woo a young girl; and in The Owners a couple in love struggle with the death of a sibling, the visitation of a ghost, sexual politics, and basic human needs. The characters are so unsure of their roles in society that one of them is actually a man being played by a woman. The collection of plays in Crosstown Traffic can be presented in a full evening of theatre.

    When I began reading Jay Amari's CROSSTOWN TRAFFIC, I didn't know what to expect. What I found was some of the most powerful drama I'd come across in years, fueled by a raw-boned honesty and the characters' own fierce yearnings. The imagery was vivid and original -- the characters edgy, often angry, and always believable -- and many of the lines so neatly turned, they dove-tailed right elegantly into the action. The creativity in this book runs not-so-silent and very deep.
