And it must accomplish this with credible and recognizably real people who are, nevertheless, slightly larger than life.

-Samuel SpewackThe five plays in this volume show the irrepressible art of mockery at its finest, from ancient Greece to modern America. Each flays pretension, foible and idiocy with such implacable intelligence that today, as when they were first performed, they still evoke howls of laughter from both reader and theatregoer. For here are some of the most memorable characters and scenes in the drama:Lysistrata- the rare and brilliant Athenian wife who invented a way to end a war through the use of womans ultimate resource.Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme- the absurd social climber, mercilessly dissected.The Inspector General- the famous attack on corruption in the government of Czarist Russia.Boy Meets Girl- the ludicrous world of the entertainment industry.
