"Howe has always claimed an affinity with the absurdists. Her work, however, in its playful exploration of the absurd in a realistic setting, more resembles the early absurdists Pirandello and especially Giraudoux, than it does later, more minimalist absurdists such as Beckett and Genet. Her plays typically work through theme and variation based on musical forms rather than linear plot development. She moves her characters to epiphany incrementally, through accretion, in a series of large and small moments that build into a final, resonant image." (encyclopedia.com)
