Plays by Susan Glaspell( Book )
15 editions published between 1987 and 2005 in English and held by 673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Long known only for a single play, Susan Glaspell now emerges as a significant figure in the history of American drama, a woman of genuine creative daring. A co-founder of the Provincetown Players - the group which acted as midwife to the American theatre - Susan Glaspell (1876-1948) can also lay claim to be a major figure in her own right. Her early plays were in many respects as challenging and original as those with which O'Neill made his debut. Her concern with language as subject, with character as an expression of social role, with plot as a mechanism which may ensnare rather than locate the self, made her very much a modern. In Trifles (1916) she developed a feminist critique of social role. In The outside (1917) she staged a debate between the life force and a perverse celebration of death. In both plays silence becomes an eloquent expression of meaning. The verge (1921) is an experimental work of considerable proportions, more daring in many ways than anything attempted by O'Neill. Though Inheritors (1921) is far more conventional it touched a contemporary nerve, questioning the nature and reality of American pieties

The Cambridge companion to theatre history by David Wiles( Book )

"Scholars, amateur historians and actors have shaped theatre history in different ways at different times and in different places. This Companion offers students and general readers a series of accessible and engaging essays on the key aspects of studying and writing theatre history. The diverse international team of contributors investigates how theatre history has been constructed, showing how historical facts are tied to political and artistic agendas and explaining why history matters to us. Beginning with an introduction to the central narrative that traditionally informs our understanding of what theatre is, the book then turns to alternative points of view-- from other parts of the world and from the perspective of performers in fields such as music-theatre and circus. It concludes by looking at how history is written in the 'democratic' age of the Internet and offers a new perspective on theatre history in our globalised world."--Publisher's description

Shakespeare in stages : new theatre histories by Christine Dymkowski( Book )
9 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The history of Shakespearean performance is very well served at its two extremes, with volumes providing a valuable historical overview of the subject and others concentrating on the performance history of a particular play. However, no individual volume provides an in-depth consideration of the stage histories of a number of plays, chosen for their particular significance within specific cultural contexts. Shakespeare in Stages addresses this gap. The original case studies explore significant anglophone performances of the plays, as well as ideas about 'Shakespeare', through the changing prisms of three different cultural factors that have proved influential in the way Shakespeare is staged: notions of authenticity, attitudes towards sex and gender, and questions of identity. Ranging from the 16th to the 21st centuries and examining productions of plays in Britain, USA, Canada, Australia, and South Africa, the studies focus attention on the complex interaction between particular plays, issues, events, and periods."--BOOK JACKET

5 editions published between 1991 and 2008 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Author Eugene O'Neill gives an autobiographical account of his explosive homelife.

Desire under the elms by Eugene O'Neill( Book )
3 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
These plays were conceived and developed in tandem, drawing heavily on the raw experience of the author's own family relationships. The first deliberately echoes Ancient Greek tragedy with its story of incest, infanticide and father/son relations within a New England farming family. The second demonstrates O'Neill's expressionistic experimentation in its use of masks to emphasize the distinction between the two characters, Dion Anthony and Brown, the one representing creative genius, the other worldly success

The hairy ape by Eugene O'Neill( Book )
2 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of the most significant plays of the twentieth century, Eugene O'Neill's The Hairy Ape is still as startlingly fresh and innovative as it was when it was first published nearly a hundred years ago. Primal working man Yank feels at home in the harsh but familiar environment of a ship's engine room, but a chance encounter with a wealthy socialite turns his world upside down and throws everything he knows into question
Plays by Susan Glaspell( Recording )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
A cofounder of the Provincetown Players and winner of a Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Susan Glaspell (1876-1948) was one of the first female playwrights. Although long neglected, the four plays collected in this critical edition reveal the thoroughly modern nature of her concerns. Trifles (1916) develops a feminist critique of social role, while The Outside (1917) stages a debate between the life force and a perverse celebration of death. In The Verge (1921), Glaspell presented an experimental work of considerable proportions, more daring in many ways than anything attempted by O'Neill. And though Inheritors (1921) is far more conventional, it nonetheless questions the nature and reality of American pieties. Long known for a single play, Glaspell now emerges as a significant figure in the history of American drama, a woman of genuine creative innovation. -http://www.loc.gov/catdir
Ah, wilderness! by Eugene O'Neill( Book )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Comedy in four acts by Eugene O'Neill, published and first performed in 1933. Perhaps the most atypical of the author's works, the play presents a sentimental tale of youthful indiscretion in a turn-of-the-century New England town. Richard, adolescent son of the local newspaper publisher, Nat Miller, exhibits the wayward tendencies of his maternal uncle, Sid Davis. Forbidden to court the neighbor girl, Muriel, by her father, Richard goes on a bender and falls under the influence of Belle, whom he tries to impress but whose worldly ways frighten him. It is the dissolute Sid who handles the situation upon the prodigal's drunken return, and with the aid of warmhearted Nat and the forgiving Muriel everything is put to right
