This vintage book contains a collection of notable nineteenth century plays. The purpose of this volume is to assemble a representative selection of the plays which served as acceptable material in that century. The nineteenth century saw the emergence of the modern stage as we understand it: a stage framed by the proscenium arch, lit by electricity, and boxed by canvas flats; and the evolution of this stage cannot be followed without a reference to the plays that were written for it. The plays contained herein are: Black Eyed Susan, Money, Masks and Faces, The Colleen Bawn, Lad Audley's Secret, The Ticket-Of-Leave Man, Two Roses, The Bells, and A Pair of Spectacles. Many antiquarian texts such as this are increasingly hard-to-come-by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a new prefatory biography of the author.
