The ideal alternative to longer anthologies, this brief, affordable, and diverse collection of widely taught and influential plays provides a concise yet comprehensive introduction to the study of drama. 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.
Elizabeth M. Sloan, Northeast State Community College
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.
