One-Act Plays

Wilder's One-Acts

"Read these plays to celebrate that purity of intention that Wilder brought to the American theatre."
-John Guare, 1997

"Because so many of the plays we see nowadays are really suited to the small screen, it is easy to forget that a stage, no matter its size, can contain the cosmos. No one understood this better than Thornton Wilder, whose plays show us how to see the infinite in the utterly mundane."
-Howard Kissel, New York Daily News
