Three plays: Our town, The skin of our teeth, The matchmaker by Thornton Wilder( Book )

1 edition published in 1940 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From The Book's Cover: Three Plays: Our Town - Skin Of Our Teeth - The Matchmaker. This volume brings together the definitive texts of three outstanding plays by one of our most distinguished writers. Two of them, Our town and The Skin Of Our Teeth, were awarded the Pulitzer Prize. The Matchmaker has never before been published. Our Town has been revised from the previously published version. All three plays were hits the most recent being The Matchmaker, which was first presented at the Edinburgh Festival in the summer of 1954, then played at the Royal Theatre in London before opening in New York in the fall of 1955 for a run of 489 performances. In his new preface for this volume Mr. Wilder writers: "The theatre has lagged behind the other arts in finding the 'new ways' to express how men and women think and feel in our time. I am not one of the new dramatists we are looking for. I wish I were. I hope I have played a part in preparing the way for them. I am not an innovator but a rediscoverer of for-gotten goods and I hope a remover of obtrusive bric-a-brac. And as I view the work of my contemporaries I seem to feel that I am exceptional in one thing - I give (don't I?) the impression of having enormously enjoyed it

Vor Blondinnen wird gewarnt( Visual )

in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Einfallsreich inszenierte Screwball-Komödie um einen "Aschenbrödel-Mann": Ein Reporter heiratet eine Tochter aus wohlhabendem High-Society-Hause, erkennt aber bald, daß er in der Ehe wie ein Vogel im goldenen Käfig gehalten wird. Bald wendet er sich einer Kollegin zu, die ihn schon immer geliebt hat. Heiter-hintergründige Unterhaltung in typischer Frank-Capra-Manier: anti-autoritär und sophisticated, aber auch anti-intellektuell bis patriotisch, hält der Film die Fahne des Individuums gegen eine ihm feindlich gesonnene Umwelt hoch."
