Response to 32 Plays You Need To Read Before You Die:
An interesting list. And true that plays are intended to be seen/experienced. However, there is also great value in studying exceptional works, from both the dramatic and literary standpoint. Having said that, there are several inclusions that seem to be included simply because they are trendy “now” and less worthy than others that have been omitted. My list would include some Williams, Miller, Chekov, Ibsen and would not include several mentioned, such as “BFE”, “Circle Mirror Transformation”, “Middletown”, “The Theory of Everything”, among others. While not bad plays, they really don’t seem - to me - to rate up there with “T Doll House”, “Death of a Salesman”, “The Glass Menagerie”, “The Three Sisters”, etc.
