By Andrew Walker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
First things first, this book is MASSIVE and it weighs a ton.

Why?

Because it is FULL of almost every classical play you could think of, from Greek theater all the way to 19th Century American theatre.

A must have for acting students and theater enthusiasts.

I received the book in a very timely fashion. Really appreciate it because I needed it for a class. It was for school, not for personal use.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! March 4 2013
By Ryan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although somewhat impractical, at times. This book is great because you can get a bunch of classic plays for a lot cheaper than the cost of buying them all separately. Also, there is an introduction on the play, playwright, time period, etc. before every play.
