For each play, a precis is provided, along with a brief essay on its historical & literary context, & a run down of petinent productions. In addition, the authors provide both an overview of the past century in history & drama, & a chronicle of one thousand of the century's notable plays, providing an understanding of what other works were being written at the time.
