Plays Worth Remembering is a two-volume set of 14 plays and two silent film screenplays by celebrated turn-of-the-20th century American playwright George Ade. Many of these works have never been published before and some do not exist in complete form anywhere else. Ade’s plays offer a valuable and funny commentary on politics, community and social norms in the late 1800s/early 1900s.
This set also contains Ade’s brief autobiography, a description of his early years as a playwright, hand-drawn stage designs and choreography suggestions, photos, poster art, and much more. It will make a fine addition to the collections of students, scholars and other aficionados of theater and film history, the craft of writing for the stage and screen, Midwestern humor, and early 20th century arts and culture.
Plays Worth Remembering will appeal to students, scholars and other aficionados of theatre and film, the art and craft of writing for the stage and screen, Midwestern history, American humor and early 20th century arts and culture.
Volume 1 focuses on George Ade’s full plays, many not found in print before now. Volume II includes musicals and Hollywood screen plays.
