Top ten favourite plays

1. Arcadia
2. Twelfth Night
3. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead
4. The Importance of Being Earnest
5. Sweet Bird of Youth
6. A Streetcar named Desire
7. The Crucible
8. Tempest
9. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
10. Cyrano de Bergerac

I've not read as many plays as novels certainly but that's my list. What about you?

Re: Top ten favourite plays

Boy, do I watch plays?

Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?

Re: Top ten favourite plays

mine is for sure

who ́s afraid of virginia woolf

i saw it once done by a amateur group, and it was amazing

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

Re: Top ten favourite plays

I saw A Streetcar named Desire a few years ago with Cate Blanchett and it was amazing


Inspiration is for amateurs

Re: Top ten favourite plays

I haven't read much, some Ancient Greek ones and Library of America editions of Kaufman, O'Neill, Williams..watched a bit of Broadway Theatre Archive ones(DVD)..in fact I'd say I've seen movie versions more than actually reading plays ...I'll take Sophocles' Antigone, I was so impressed I have multiple editions in original ancient Greek

Ashamed to say I've read only a couple of Shakespeare Are Racine & Moliere good?

I don't like comedies, but I liked Moliere. I'm not impressed by Racine. When it comes to tragedies, for me, Shakespeare is the best ever. I've never read a tragedy that is comparable to King Lear, Hamlet, Othello, Macbeth...

And I like Greek tragedies too. Antigone, Prometheus Bound, Medea, Oresteia, The Seven Against Thebes etc. are all masterpieces.

Chekhov's plays are also amazing.

You don't watch plays (do you then READ it?), movies, what DO you watch And why do you COMMENT in these threads in the first place if you're not interested? Or ARE you?

Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?
