A Pocketful of Plays: Vintage Drama contains six plays that research reveals to be currently among the most commonly studied in class around the country. The plays include source materials to encourage further discussion and analysis, Among these enhancement are author's comments, biographical and critical commentaries, and reviews of actual productions.
