  1. Funnily enough, I just received my order of a second-hand copy of Contradictions because it is on the booklist for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Theatre course for high school students (17-18yo). None of the our students at the school I work at have decided to try their hand at “the concept musical” for which this book is a recommended read, but I thought I’d have a gander.
