This chronologically organized anthology includes playwrights from classical Greece to contemporary Broadway, reflecting the work of the genre’s most distinguished playwrights.
Gwynn’s Drama is a terrific and affordable collection of plays...I recommend to students that they keep [this volume] after the class is over to read for pleasure and to use for reference.
Laura Early, University of Louisville
The plays in [this] text are a perfect spring board for everything that needs to be covered in the class. It is a text that gets straight to the point of theatre. I appreciate this fact and the fact that it is actually affordable. The students like that.
In addition to offering a strong selection of plays, Gwynn...introduces students, in fluent prose, not only to key traditions in drama but also to the working vocabulary they’ll need for the course.
