The malcontent by John Marston( Book )

10 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A student edition of Marston's classic play The Malcontent is a tragicomedy deriving from the tradition of the revenge play. The verbal ingenuity of Malevole, the ""malcontent"", and the extravagance of the drama, push the relentlessness of intrigue to its logical conclusion, exposing the basically comic aspect of the genre. The conventional function of the climactic masque is inverted, leading to the essential resolution of the comedy. This edition comes with full commentary and notes, together with photos of Jonathan Miller's acclaimed 1973 production at the Nottingham Playhouse

Our country's good : based on the The playmaker, a novel by Thomas Keneally by Timberlake Wertenbaker( Book )

5 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Winner of the Laurence Olivier Play of the Year Award in 1988, and many other major awards, 'Our Country's Good' was first produced at the Royal Court Theatre in 1988. Wertenbaker's adaptation of Keneally's novel 'The Playmaker' concerns a group of Royal Marines and convicts in a penal colony in New South Wales in the 1780s, who put on a production of 'The Recruiting Officer'. The play shows the class system in the convict camp and discusses themes such as sexuality, punishment, the Georgian judicial system, and the idea that that it is possible for 'theatre to be a humanising force'
The rover by Aphra Behn( Book )

5 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The plot follows the fortunes of opposing lovers, one a woman of quality masquerading as a courtesan and one a wandering rake whose philandering days end when he falls in love with her. Several near-rapes and the tragic case of a jilted courtesan, another character in the play, balance the comic treatment of sexual politics in the seventeenth century
