Six of the plays - A Collier's Friday Night, The Widowing of Mrs. Holroyd, The Merry-go-Round, The Married Man, The Fight for Barbara and The Daughter-in-Law - were written between 1909 and 1913, the period when Lawrence was establishing himself as a writer. They are arguably among his best early work. Yet Lawrence never saw a play of his own on the stage. Only two were performed in his lifetime, and only three were published. The play often regarded as his best, The Daughter-in-Law, remained unpublished until 1965. Up to now, the plays have existed only in faulty or incomplete texts; this edition, drawn from Lawrence's own surviving manuscripts and typescripts, makes it possible for the first time to read and to stage Lawrence's plays as he wrote them."--Jacket."
