THE TWENTY FIVE BEST PLAYS OF ALL TIME

THE FOLLOWING ARE THE 25 BEST PLAYS OF ALL TIME, ACCORDING TO THE TELEGRAPH. ONLY TWO IRISH PLAYS QUALIFY; WAITING FOR GODOT AND THE LIEUTENANT OF INISHMORE. NO ROOM FOR O’CASEY, SYNGE OR BEHAN? SHAKESPEARE GETS ONLY TWO, HAMLET AND A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM. CARYL CHURCHILL GETS ONE, AS DOES VACLAV HAVEL AND NOEL COWARD. BETTER THAN TENNESSEE WILLIAMS OR BRIAN FRIEL?  JOE ORTON, TOM STOPPARD, JOHN OSBORNE ETC,                       I DON’T THINK SO.
