BEST PLAYS OF THE MODERN AMERICAN THEATRE: Fourth Series 105-1957

The introduction and preface by the editor give a short survey of these five years of Broadway productions and the texts of the 17 plays included are preceded with individual introductions. Some from these seasons have been unavailable for publication: Long Day's Journey Into Night. The Diary of Anne Frank, The Tea house of the August Moon, The Flowering Peach: but this current inventory has its quota of well remembered theatre from I Am A Camera to Tea and No Time for Sergeants, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Crucible, etc. There is a supplementary list of Broadway plays (and some off-Broadway selections) and a bibliography, and the whole is a desirable item for drama shelves and study, classes in playwriting and drama courses.
