  • Playsby Anton Chekhov; Peter Carson

    Penguin Books Ltd 2002; US$ 12.78

    At a time when the Russian theatre was dominated by formulaic melodramas and farces, Chekhov created a new sort of drama that laid bare the everyday lives, loves and yearnings of ordinary people. Ivanov depicts a man stifled by inactivity and lost idealism, and The Seagull contrasts a young man's selfish romanticism with the stoicism of a woman cruelly... more...

  • Volpone and Other Playsby Ben Jonson; Michael Jamieson

    Penguin Books Ltd 2004; US$ 15.98

    The three plays collected in this volume depict the faults, errors and foibles of ordinary people with exuberant humour, savage satire and acute observations.

The Alchemist also deals... more...

    Victor, a New York cop nearing retirement, moves among furniture in the disused attic of a house marked for demolition.

But when his brother Walter, who he hasn't spoken to in years, arrives, the talk stops being just about whether... more...

  • Griefby Mike Leigh

  • Alan Ayckbourn Plays 5by Alan Ayckbourn

    Faber & Faber 2011; US$ 19.99

    Snake in the Grass A terrific piece - brilliant, bizarre and yet totally believable . . . In fact, it's more than classic; it's close to the top of its class. Yorkshire Post If I Were You A blissfully funny comedy that's also filled with sadness, a devilishly simple theatrical idea that spins out all kinds of complex truths about human... more...

  • Alan Ayckbourn Plays 4by Alan Ayckbourn

    Faber & Faber 2011; US$ 19.99

    The Revengers' Comedies A hugely entertaining pitch that recalls the old movies to which it frequently pays homage - Strangers on a Train , Rebecca , Kind Hearts and Coronets - and expands after intermission to reveal an immensely disturbing vision of contemporary middle-class England poisoned by the rise of economic ruthlessness and the collapse... more...

  • Britannicusby Timberlake Wertenbaker

But as his taste for power grows, Nero begins to slip from his mother's control. Britannicus's life is threatened and Rome... more...
