One act radio and stage plays selected to represent contemporary democracy with its faults and virtues. The social theatre rather than solely entertainment or patriotic. Unpublished work written for this collection, including such authors as Paul Green, Richard Wright, Irwin Shaw, Manuel Komroff, Leane Zugsmith and others. Out of the run of the mill collection, which should be marked for special consideration in socially minded little theatre groups, and drama study groups. Public libraries.
