Even with short plays, a book can load up too many and overload the reader. This is one of those books, especially since most of the plays are grim and depressing. Also, I think the editor may have selected plays solely by the name of the author (most of them are well known), and not by the quality of the play, since many of these fail to achieve the high quality expected of most of these authors. Overall, rather a disappointment. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0880014903, Paperback)

A dazzling collection and already a standard reference for those interested in contemporary drama, Plays in One Act is a unique compilation of plays and monologues that showcases a stunning and diverse array of work from some of the most important voices in theater.

Forty-three modern works are collected here: from plays by important contemporary artists such as David Mamet, Wendy Wasserstein, Sam Shepard, and John Guare, to gems by masters like Arthur Miller and Tennessee Williams, and newer talents like Carol S. Lashof and Perry Souchuk. Leading British playwrights -- Tom Stoppard, David Hare, and John Osborne -- are also featured, along with the international voices of Václav Hacel and Kobo Abe, and works by such established wtiters as Eudora welty, Joyce Carol Oates, Richard Ford, and Garrison Keilor, who are writing outside their traditional genres.
