Guide to Play Selection; A Selective Bibliography for Production and Study of Modern Plays. Third Edition.
Mersand, Joseph, Ed.
This selective bibliography for production and study of modern plays was compiled by the NCTE Liaison Committee with the Speech Communication Association and the American Theatre Association. The introduction, "A Guide to Play Production," discusses general criteria of play selection and provides an overview of the collaborative process of producing a play, focusing chiefly on the role of the director in giving conceptual unity to the production. Approximately 850 plays are described and arranged according to playwright in the section entitled "Guide to Play Selection." The appendixes include listings of publishers, distributors, or agents who control amateur performance rights to plays described in the guide. Addresses of authors representing their own works, if known, are also given. The bibliography of anthologies and collections lists over 400 volumes which contain plays listed in this guide. Included are author and title indexes, as well as a topical index and an index arranged according to the number and sex of the players required in each play. (LL)
