Having surveyed post-war British drama in State of the Nation Michael Billington now looks at the global picture. In this provocative and challenging new book he offers his highly personal selection of the 101 greatest plays ranging from the Greeks to the present-day. But his book is no mere list. Billington justifies his choices in extended essays - and even occasional dialogues- that put the plays in context explain their significance and trace their performance history. In the end it's a book that poses an infinite number of questions. What makes a great play? Does the definition change with time and circumstance? Or are certain common factors visible down the ages? It's safe to say that it's a book that in revising the accepted canon is bound to stimulate passionate argument and debate. Everyone will have strong views on Billington's chosen hundred and one and will be inspired to make their own selections. But coming from Britain's longest-serving theatre critic these essays are the product of a lifetime spent watching and reading plays and record the adventures of a soul amongst masterpieces.
