SEVEN PLAYS by Elmer Rice


Email this review


Seven of the best-loved plays by the master playwright. The plays included -- On Trial The Adding Machine Street Scene. Counselor-at-Law, Judgement Day, Two on an Island and Dream Girl. From the murder mystery On Trial, (1914), which used the flashback technique now monopolized by the movies, the expressionistic satire of The Adding Machine (1923); the moving realism of Street Scene (Pulitzer Prize winner of 1929); through the ideological issues of Judgment Day to the later lighter plays, the reader can trace development in style and construction. A must for the drama shelf.
