List of Plays, by Trend

Home

Note: these groupings do not include every play in the collection. The groupings reflect the most common internal and external trends of the plays. Internal trends include the subjects of Nationality, Class, Dialect and Gender treated by the plays. The Contemporary Satire group bridges both the internal and external trends, as the topics of the plays are reflective of both a playwright's and an audience's taste. The external trend of Popularity includes the plays that did particularly well (or especially badly, in the case of Love and the City!) during their initial and subsequent sets of performances; the language varieties and other subjects treated by these plays would have had a wider audience and likely a greater impact.
