Abstract:

A collection of four plays by one of the most important American playwrights of the mid-century era.

"Beginning in 1950, William Inge achieved four consecutive Broadway successes with the plays in this volume, which gained even greater audiences as motion pictures. Come Back, Little Sheba concerns itself with the near-tragic crisis in the lives of an alcoholic and his wife; Picnic deals with the effects of the arrival of a vagabond on a group of women in a small Kansas town; Bus Stop centers on a group of people stranded in a small café; The Dark at the Top of the Stairs presents a somber picture of a family haunted by unfocused fears and prejudices." -- Publisher's description
