BeschreibungMore Short Plays is an anthology of short, single act plays written by Mary Macmillan. They are quick to read and a pleasure to see performed.
Mary Macmillan was a prolific playwright in the early twentieth century, and published hundreds of plays over the course of her career. This collection features a total of eight of her works. The plays are all delivered in one act, however one story, In Medelesia, is actually divided into two entirely separate works. While several of the plays are clearly comedies, and others dramatic, the majority of Macmillan's work here straddles the line between the two genres. The standout work is The Dryad, a fantastical story about the female spirit of a tree and her advice to a young woman. His Second Girl and Honey are other highpoints of this collection.
Macmillan wrote plays to be widely consumed and enjoyed. Her work naturally appeals to a broad audience, and the collection presented in More Short Plays is no different. This is a series of accessible and enjoyable works, with plays that are a pleasure to read and would be suitable for presentation to any audience.
More Short Plays is typical Mary Macmillan: pleasant, entertaining and quick. If you are a reader who enjoys dramatic works this collection is certainly worthy of your consideration.
