Short comedies Characters: Various males and females, extras In each of these masterpieces from the authors of Four Plays for Coarse Actors, sets collapse, actors fail to appear on cue and props fall to pieces while the casts carry on, believing that the audience won't notice. Moby Dick is an ambitious attempt to reduce the epic novel to a series of quick fire scenes. The Cherry Sisters, a previously undiscovered Chekhov fragment, is a desperately sincere piece with a teary ending (spoiled by a faulty prop that necessitates a standing death). Last Call for Breakfast is an avant garde play shortened because an actor is in the wrong place during a black out. Henry the Tenth (Part Seven) is a rarely performed tragedy with battle scenes that would amaze the bard. Size: Mid Sized Paperback ( 7¾" - 9¾" tall ). 74 pages.

In this study, first published in 1985, Austin E. Quigley takes as his paradigm case the relationship between the world of the stage and the world of the audience, and explores various modes of communication between domains. He asks how changes in the structure of the drama relate to changes in the structure of the theatre, and changes in the role of the audience. Detailed interpretations of plays by Pinero, Ibsen, Strindberg, Brecht, Ionesco, Beckett and Pinter question principles about the modern theatre and establish links between drama structure and theatre structure, theme, and performance space.

A sophisticated Australian-born actor, Alec Ritchie, returns to Sydney to make a film after 10 years at Stratford and the Old Vic. His revulsion against his homeland sets a dilemma for his wife, torn by her loyalty to Australia on the one hand and her obligation to their crumbling marriage on the other. Besides the tension between husband and wife, there is conflict between the old country and the new, between the affected angler files, the sophisticated Australians who think that all that is best comes from the old country, and the genuine Australians, suffering considerably from "national inferiority nonsense".
