The titles below are a culmination of suggestions from the entire faculty. You are required to read all of the plays on the list. Note that, though this assignment is intended to be a delight (and we all hope that you find reading plays a delight!), it is also meant to be taken seriously. These plays were chosen specifically because the faculty feels strongly that you should have read each and every one of them. We expect that you walk into our doors this fall with these plays under your belt.
