A doll's house by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

15 editions published between 1985 and 2008 in English and held by 236 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 by Bertolt Brecht( Book )

8 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)

Uncle Vanya by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

So, what happens in Uncle Vanya? Not much; just life, played out over four acts. There are rich people, and there are people who work for the rich people, whom the rich people don't really care about. There is a gun fired in anger and desperation, but there aren't any bodies to carry off stage. There are men making fools of themselves over women. There are those who accept their fates and wait for their rewards in heaven, and there are others who don't care one way or another. Chekhov's play moves so languidly that, without a vibrant cast, an understanding director, and a lively translation, it stands the chance of passing under the radar of the average audience. The reworking of the script aims at accessibility, replacing the "outdated colloquialisms" and "brittle prose" of earlier translations
