A doll's house by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

14 editions published between 1985 and 2008 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The slamming of the front door at the end of A Doll's House shatters the romantic masquerade of the Helmers' marriage.

The resistible rise of Arturo Ui : a parable play by Bertolt Brecht( Book )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brecht's brilliant parable recasts Hitler's rise to pwower in terms of a small-time takeover of Chicago's greengrocery trade. Bertolt Brecht referred to The Resistable Rise of Arturo Ui as his "gangster play." Written in a matter of three weeks in 1941 during Brecht's exile in Finland, it takes place in his favorite U.S. setting, Chicago, and satirizes Hitler's rise to power in terms of a small-time takeover of the greengrocery trade in that mythic city. A brilliant parable, it is at once a trenchant retelling of the past and a serious warning - that fascism did not pass with the defeat of Hitler - for the future. Commissioned and authorized by the Brecht estate, Arcade's definitive edition of The Resistable Rise of Arturo Ui contains a translation by John Willett and an introduction by the joint editors of Brecht's collected works in English, John Willett and Ralph Manheim. The appendix provides Brecht's own notes and relevant texts as well as extensive editorial commentary on the genesis of the play."--Website of Arcade Publishing (Nov. 1, 2010)
Strife by John Galsworthy( Book )

9 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Strife' charts the progress of an industrial strike at the Trenartha Tin Plate Works, dealing with the fanatical antagonism between industrial workers and those who are determined to remain their masters. The play's structure is intended to present an impartial balance between the forces of revolt and conservatism, describing the fierce stalemate from both the workers' and the directors' points of view. The vehement ideologies of each side are eventually defeated by the negative, reductive force of compromise, but the power of Galsworthy's characters is designed to resonate beyond their circumstances as portraits of absolute extremism. The play was first produced in 1909 at the Duke of York's Theatre, London
The playboy of the western world : a comedy in three acts by J. M Synge( Book )

7 editions published between 1983 and 2014 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comedy in three acts by J.M. Synge, published and produced in 1907. It is a masterpiece of the Irish Literary Renaissance. This most famous of Synge's works fused the patois of ordinary Irish villagers with Synge's sophisticated rhetoric and enraged Irish playgoers with its satire of Irish braggadocio. The play follows the mercurial rise and fall of the character Christy Mahon, whose self-reported murder of his father earns him much admiration until his father shows up alive and in pursuit of his cowardly son. --The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature

Chekhov's tragicomedy, replete with the kinds of characters we have come to know as "Chekhovian, " incorporates unrequited loves and a murder plot while exploring the social roles of women and the notion of progress. Curt Columbus's splendid new translation and adaptation underscores the contemporary relevance of this prophetic play
