Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904) overturned the dramatic conventions of his day and laid the groundwork for contemporary approaches to directing and acting. Now, for the first time, the full lyricism, humor, and pathos of his greatest plays are available to an English-speaking audience. Marina Brodskaya's new translations of Ivanov, The Seagull, Uncle Vanya, Three Sisters, and The Cherry Orchard not only surpass in accuracy all previous translations, but also provide the first complete English text of the plays, restoring passages entirely omitted by her predecessors. This much-needed volume renders Chekhov in language that will move readers and theater audiences alike, making accessible his wordplay, unstated implications, and innovations. His characters' vulnerabilities, needs, and neuroses—their humanity—emerge through their genuine, self-absorbed conversations. The plays come to life as never before and will surprise readers with their vivacity, originality, and relevance.

John Galsworthy (1867-1933), novelist and dramatist, is most widely known as the author of The Forsyte Saga, but recent productions testify to the power that his plays still exert over modern audiences and the strength and relevance of the issues he raise In Strife, Galsworthy deals with industrial relations; in Justice, with prison life - it was one of the few plays to effect real reforms. The Eldest Son is also about injustice - one law for the rich, another for the poor; The Skin Game, Galsworthy's first commercial success, presents class conflict; while Loyalties, 'a crime drama', is about division and prejudice. John Galsworthy is a winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature

Between 1660 and 1682 seventeen of Shakespeare's plays were altered for the new Restoration stages and times. Shakespeare Adaptations from the Restoration: Five Plays now publishes five of these plays for the first time in a critical edition. The Introduction begins with an account of the events that led from civil war to the Restoration, the nature of Restoration stages, and the fate of Shakespeare on them, and is designed for those less familiar with these topics. This is followed by a critical account of the plays, setting each in the context of contemporary political events, and (with the notes) offering suggestions about staging. With the texts the broad editorial intention has been to present clear and consistent versions in which spelling and punctuation, as well as contemporary printing conventions have been interfered with as little as possible. Endnotes gloss unfamiliar words, phrases, and references, and include a brief account of the plays' source materials, critical history, and stage history.

Five plays: The northern lasse, 1632. The sparagvs garden, 1640. The antipodes, 1640. The joviall crew: or, The merry beggars, 1652. The queenes exchange, 1657
