1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Orestia--Agamemnon, Choephori, and The Eumenides--depicts the downfall of the house of Atreus: after King Agamemnon is murdered by Clytemnestra, their son, Orestes, is commanded by Apollo to avenge the crime by killing his mother, and he does so, bringing on himself the wrath of the Furies and the judgment of Athens. Together, the three plays are one of the major achievements of Greek antiquity. Hughes's 'acting version' of the trilogy is itself a great performance; while artfully inflected with the contemporary, it has a classical beauty and authority"--Jacket

This volume brings together the definitive texts of three outstanding plays by one of our most distinguished writers. Two of them, Our town and The Skin Of Our Teeth, were awarded the Pulitzer Prize. The Matchmaker has never before been published. Our Town has been revised from the previously published version. All three plays were hits the most recent being The Matchmaker, which was first presented at the Edinburgh Festival in the summer of 1954, then played at the Royal Theatre in London before opening in New York in the fall of 1955 for a run of 489 performances. In his new preface for this volume Mr. Wilder writers: "The theatre has lagged behind the other arts in finding the 'new ways' to express how men and women think and feel in our time. I am not one of the new dramatists we are looking for. I wish I were. I hope I have played a part in preparing the way for them. I am not an innovator but a rediscoverer of for-gotten goods and I hope a remover of obtrusive bric-a-brac. And as I view the work of my contemporaries I seem to feel that I am exceptional in one thing - I give (don't I?) the impression of having enormously enjoyed it
