  • About the Edition

    What makes a great play? Does the definition change with time and circumstance? Are certain common factors visible down the ages? In revising the canon The 101 Greatest Plays is bound to stimulate passionate argument, but first and foremost it is a celebration of the art of the dramatist. It is the product of a lifetime spent watching and reading, a record of the adventures of a soul amongst masterpieces.
