Four plays from the middle of the 20th century, all of them reasonably well known works, but not frequently performed anymore. It started out poorly, with excessive exposition opening up The Tenth Man, but got better long before the end of the first play, and overall was an enjoyable experience. For the most part, these plays are realism, though the Chayefsky play might be more accurately called magical realism (maybe). ( )
