ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Ronald Ribman, a gifted dramatist, and who is also the author of the novels "Harry Noon and Night," "The Journey of the Fifth Horse" and "Ceremony of Innocence," among other memorable works of the sixties and seventies. In his ungainly new play, "Buck," which closed recently, after a brief run at the American Place, he still displayed his gifts, although they were frequently drowned in confusion and downright foolishness.
