4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The three plays in this volume represent Kelly at his peak. The Torch-Bearers is a hilarious satire on the pretentiousness of the amateur theater. The Show-Off, his most successful comedy, is set in Philadelphia's East Falls, Kelly's home town. It is a delightful, penetrating study of row-house life that features Aubrey Piper - the memorable title figure with his toupee, carnation, and blustering laugh." "Craig's Wife, Kelly's first serious drama, is an incisive study of a calculating, house-proud woman who will go to any extent to secure control of her husband and her home. It won the Pulitzer Prize in 1926."--BOOK JACKET
