  • Cyrano de Bergerac
    Edmond Rostand
    Hercule-Savinien de Cyrano de Bergerac was a French dramatist and duelist. He is now best remembered for the works of fiction which have been woven, often very loosely, around his life story, most notably the 1897 play by Edmond Rostand. In these fictional works he is featured with an overly large nose, which people would travel from miles around to see. Portraits suggest that ...

  • The Knights
    Aristophanes Aristophanes
    The play is a satire on the social and political life of classical Athens during the Peloponnesian War and in this respect it is typical of all the dramatist’s early plays. It is unique however in the relatively small number of its characters and this was due to its scurrilous preoccupation with one man, the pro-war populist Cleon. ...

  • Mississippi Goddamn
    Jonathan Norton
       “Some shows have warnings for strobe lights. Some have them for loud gunshots.  Some for smoke.   MISSISSIPPI GODDAMN, a new play by Jonathan Norton should have one for intensity.   Granted, anyone attending a play about civil rights pioneer Medgar Evers set in 1963 Jackson, Mississippi, should expect some strife.

  • The Lady From Maxim’s
    Georges Feydeau / Laurence Senelick
       “It seems to me that for fertility in droll inventions, the perpetual outpouring of unforeseen misunderstandings, for the inexhaustible gaiety of dialogue, Feydeau’s new play is superior to everything he’s written so far. The most astonishing thing is the sureness with which everything is controlled, explained, justified, in the most extravagant buffoonery. The cross-purpose...

A queen, I mean, and not just of the self-dramatizing type. Scratch that. She’s more than a queen. She’s a pharaoh, one Hatshepsut, who reigned over Egypt ...

    For many generations, stories have been an expression of thought, culture, and entertainment. From folklores to tales shared under the moonlight, one thing rings true: Stories show us where we've been, tell us where we are, and point us to paths uncharted. The 'single story' is often used to depict an incomplete narrative or stereotype. Nonetheless, the author commends it as a...

    Aeschylus was the first of the three ancient Greek tragedians whose plays can still be read or performed, the others being Sophocles and Euripides. He is often described as the father of tragedy: our knowledge of the genre begins with his work and our understanding of earlier tragedies is largely based on inferences from his surviving plays. Only seven of his estimated seventy ...
