Odyssey: Classic 20th-Century Plays and Playwrights

Each of the following 20th-century plays—Cat on a Hot Tin Roof by Tennessee Williams, Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller, Fences by August Wilson, Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett, and The Little Foxes by Lillian Hellman—is considered a classic for many reasons, including their themes, craftsmanship, and timeliness. Each playwright has led an extremely interesting life, certainly as interesting as the characters in his/her plays. These plays are often performed, including here in Baltimore at Center Stage, Everyman Theater, and in neighborhood theaters. And these plays and playwrights are subject to endless discussion. These plays are available in collections and stand-alone copies, or they may be printed from online editions.
