Open the attached file entitled “Theatre Reader Challenge.”  There you will find a list of 52 plays.  Choose one of these plays to read and write a 500-word (minimum) summary and response.


When deciding which play to read, it might be wise to do a bit of research so that you know something about the play (genre, time period, etc.) before you devote much time to it.  Please note that some plays may contain mature content, but that each of these plays is considered to have high literary merit among the theatre community.

Write a 500-word essay, detailing the plot, major characters, and central themes of your chosen play.  Part of this essay should include your response to the play; quite simply, did you enjoy reading the play?  Why or why not? Please make sure that your essay is written in MLA format with appropriate citations (if needed), using appropriate grammar, spelling, and punctuation.
