Online College Courses has published a great list of 50 Classic Plays Every Student Should Read that should prove interesting reading for visitors of The Drama Teacher.
Divided into Greek, Shakespeare, older classics, modern era and newer classics, the list (numbered in no particular order of priority) includes wonderful plays like Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, A Streetcar Named Desire, King Lear, The Playboy of the Western World, A Raisin in the Sun, Equus, Waiting for Godot and Lysistrata.
A list such as this will no doubt create debate. What’s your favourite play? Can you think of any plays that should be on the list, but aren’t?
