Increase Your Social and Moral Intelligence!
Read a play!

Award-winning playwright and distinguished psychologist, Rabbi Milton Matz, Ph.D., explores a new direction for American theatre in his recently published, Nine Plays in Search of an Ending. His theme is clear: every life is a play, and we--all playwrights searching for good endings.

Matz has heard thousands of dilemmas. He explores the most challenging ones by writing nine fictional plays, three full plays with controversial endings and six short plays with no endings at all. Each play focuses on a provocative issue.Reading a play puts us in each character's shoes and enables us to see through their eyes endings we never imagined. If we choose to share our endings with others, our supply of practical solutions to personal dilemmas increase. This process of search for mutually satisfying solutions is the heart of social/moral intelligence. Frequently more important than intellectual intelligence, it enables us to live productive and harmonious lives.

The book includes guidelines for discussion and an easy to follow inventory of communication behaviors for dealing with complex moral dilemmas.

Included in the collection are Matz's award winning plays, Spinoza, Maria and Excommunication, Breakfast at the Regency and Affairs of State, a hilarious satire on infidelity, therapy and politics in Washington.

Nine Plays in Search of an Ending promises to help your search.

So! Read a play! And luck with your endings!
