I’m looking for some great plays with strong books that make for good reading. I’ve read Our Town and am planning or reading The Glass Menagerie, but I want to expand past the standards. I don’t have a preference on genre, but I’m a sucker for small cast character exploration. Any suggestions?
I really enjoyed David Lindsay-Abaire's Ripcord. It's got some great character development and an intimate cast, and deals with some interesting issues relating to both family and aging.
Annie Baker, Annie Baker, Annie Baker. Read everything she has in print.
^I second that reccomendationalso look into Steven Adly Gurigis, Suzan-Lori Parks, August Willson, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, Adrienne Kennedy or Edward Albee
For something a little "weirder", but very good, look into Samuel Beckett's work. I especially enjoy Waiting For Godot.
Tennessee Williams, Judith Thompson, Robert Lapage,
I usually hate reading plays but have enjoyed reading anything by Tennessee Williams and August Wilson.
