The Coarse Acting Show 2; Further Plays for Coarse Actors (Acting Edition)
Green, Michael,
ISBN: 0573100055
Samuel French, New York, 2011. Reprint
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. Reprint. 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.

First performed in May 1939, the first Australian attempt to perform it was 1980, where after two rehearsals, in a body, the Australian actors marched out of the play and refused to act in it.

Long day’s journey into night
O’Neill, Eugene,
ISBN: 0224610732
jonathan Cape, London, 1973. reprint
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. reprint. This work is interesting enough for its history. Completed in 1940, Long Day's Journey Into Night is an autobiographical play Eugene O'Neill wrote that -- because of the highly personal writing about his family -- was not to be released until 25 years after his death, which occurred in 1953. But since O'Neill's immediate family had died in the early 1920s, his wife allowed publication of the play in 1956. Besides the history alone, the play is fascinating in its own right. It tells of the "Tyrones" -- a fictional name for what is clearly the O'Neills. Theirs is not a happy tale: The youngest son (Edmond) is sent to a sanitarium to recover from tuberculosis; he despises his father for sending him; his mother is wrecked by narcotics; and his older brother by drink. In real-life these factors conspired to turn O'Neill into who he was -- a tormented individual and a brilliant playwright. Size: 12mo (standard paperback). 160 pages. The book is a secondhand book with reading creases to the spine, and darkening of the page edges, but is otherwise clean, and free of annotation. Please refer to accompanying picture (s).

Long day’s journey into night
O’Neill, Eugene,
ISBN: 0224610732
jonathan Cape, London, 1973. reprint
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. reprint. This work is interesting enough for its history. Completed in 1940, Long Day's Journey Into Night is an autobiographical play Eugene O'Neill wrote that -- because of the highly personal writing about his family -- was not to be released until 25 years after his death, which occurred in 1953. But since O'Neill's immediate family had died in the early 1920s, his wife allowed publication of the play in 1956. Besides the history alone, the play is fascinating in its own right. It tells of the "Tyrones" -- a fictional name for what is clearly the O'Neills. Theirs is not a happy tale: The youngest son (Edmond) is sent to a sanitarium to recover from tuberculosis; he despises his father for sending him; his mother is wrecked by narcotics; and his older brother by drink. In real-life these factors conspired to turn O'Neill into who he was -- a tormented individual and a brilliant playwright. Size: 12mo (standard paperback). 160 pages. The book is a secondhand book with reading creases to the spine, and darkening of the page edges, essentially clean, but with some scattered notes and underlining..

The Confrontation. A Trilogy 1 : The Demonstration ( a Play): 2 : The Illusion ( an Essay): 3 : The Occupation (a Novel)
Caute, David,

Andre Deutsch, London, 1970. First Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Good/Good. First Edition. 112, 268, 304 pp, all with illustrated dust jackets. The dust jacket of the Occupation is the only one which is not price clipped. The dust jacket of the Demonstration has a stippled the front panel of the dustwrapper and of the front board, leaving both with the impression of being pockmarked.. A political play, part of a three work whole, the other two parts being The Illusion (a long essay) & The Occupation (a novel), each part is autonomous and can be read (or, in the case of the The Demonstration, performed) without reference to the other parts. Nevertheless all three question the role of the writer and political action, arguing that content is not something which exists to be packaged in this way or that, and as a result of the mediation between subject and form; and that any committed writer must be sharply aware of this. All three books show some dustiness of the top edge. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Quantity Available: 1.

Their mutual frustration is lightened by love, understanding and carried; while Bill, unable to speak to those on stage, shares with the audience in the sides of dry, sardonic wit, the real feelings and observations of a middle-aged man trapped in the bodily functions of a baby." -- From the rear panel blurb.

Illustrated card cover with black and gray coloured titles to the front panel and black coloured titles to the backstrip. The Acting Company, a touring repertory theatre group in America, had difficulty in attracting new works to their repertoire, as playwrights preferred to see their works premiered on regular runs in New York or in regional theatres. To circumvent this lack of contemporary material, the executive producer had the thought of circulating a number of Chekhov stories amongst a dozen of America's most successful young playwrights. As the foreword, page 5 states " ... The idea was not simply to adapt or dramatises the stories, but to use them as a cue for the creation of short theatrical pieces to be produced by the Company as part of its rapid tree season." These are the plays: – Maria Irene Fornes – Drowning, Spalding Gray – Rivkala's Ring, John Guare – The Talking Dog, David Mamet – Vint, Wendy Wassertein – The Man in a Case, Michael Weller -- Eve Of the Trial, Samm-Art Williams.

Blue coloured boards with gilt titles to the backstrip. Illustrated dustwrapper with white coloured titles to the front panel and backstrip. "Unaccountably neglected among the works of major twentieth-century writers, the plays of D.H. Lawrence provide rich insights into the nature of this particular genius and its development. Spanning almost the whole of his writing career, from 1906 to 1926, the plays are a creative document of his never-ceasing search for new forms. Besides providing a fascinating commentary on Lawrence's other writings, the themes and preoccupations of which they consistently reflect, these plays are of the greatest interest in themselves, and this book sets out to give them the detailed critical attention that they have long deserved." – From the front fold over panel blurb.

Meet John Doe

ISBN: 0813513871
Rutgers University Press, New Brunswick and London, 1989. First Edition
 Softcover Softcover. Good Condition/. Illustrator: Photographic. First Edition. acknowledgements, introduction – Authors, Audiences and Endings by Charles Wolfe, Frank Capra: A Biographical Sketch and selected bibliography. The text is illustrated with the occasional black-and-white film still. Photographic card cover with black coloured titles to the front panel and backstrip. "The third film in a celebrated trilogy of socio-political dramas directed by Frank Capra in the late 1930s and early 1940s, Meet John Doe is arguably his most ambitious and disturbing work. Similar To Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, Meet John Doe placed its hero at the center of a topical political crisis in America, in this instance the threat of a fascist coup by a media tycoon. But Meet John Joe complicated the motives of its hero and heroine, and the behaviour of it's erstwhile constituency – the "little people" – to such a degree that the comic triumph marking the ending of the earlier films was thrown into doubt. Produced independently by Capra and screenwriter Robert Riskin in the months prior to America's entry into World War II, Meet John Doe attracted widespread attention both within the film industry and without, and a search to a satisfactory ending to eat was a matter of much critical discussion and debate." – From the rear panel blurb.
