  1. May I suggest George Bernard Shaw? He's brilliant!..and..er...he hated Shakespeare...but that's beside the point. Most of his plays are social satire. You might be familiar with his work Pygmalion, which was made into the movie My Fair Lady starring Rex Harrison and Audrey Hepburn. Two or three other famous plays of his are Arms and the Man, Joan of Arc, and Major Barbara. He has quite a few more but the ones I've mentioned are the ones I'm familiar with.

    1. Of course you may, Risa. Of course the list is far from complete, it's only to give suggestions. But OK, I will add Bernard Shaw in it, I have wanted to read one of his plays too anyway. Thanks for the idea.. :)

    2. You're welcome. :) .... if you're planning to give Shaw a try I would recommend starting with Arms and the Man....it's a favourite of mine. :D

      And I have one more name to throw out there...I can't believe I forgot him! -- Christopher Marlowe. He's Shakespeare's contemporary well known for The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus, The Jew of Malta and Tamberlaine parts one and two. :)

    3. Actually I've been thinking about Saint Joan; I'm quite curious of how he would put a saint scene on play. But thanks for the suggestion anyway, I'll browse for them to get a better feeling. :)

  2. I would also suggest some Lope de Vega (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lope_de_Vega) for the list. "The Dog in the Manger" is my favourite! His style is very light and the dialogs are very witty.
