Enhance your understanding and appreciation of theatre by going straight to the source-the play scripts! This anthology includes 15 plays that represent a wide historical range as well as the vibrant diversity of contemporary American theatre. An opening essay sets the context for each play, helping you to read with a more informed and analytical eye. The scripts also serve as a foundation that makes discussions of the various types of theatrical experience in your main text more meaningful.
