Paul Rudnick

The Collected Plays of Paul Rudnick

"Paul Rudnick is a champion of truth (and love and great wicked humor) whom we ignore at our peril." --David Sedaris, author of Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day , and Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk This definitive collection of Paul Rudnick's plays presents the pinnacle of theatrical hilarity from one of America's great humorists. Popular for his wickedly funny novels, including I'll Take It and Social Disease , comic screenplays like In & Out and Addams Family Values , and the Augusten Burroughs-like memoir I Shudder , Rudnick remains best known for his cerebral but side-splitting theatrical writing. With echoes of Neil Simon, Thornton Wilder, and Noel Coward, Rudnick plays like I Hate Hamlet , Jeffrey , and The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told are outstanding fixtures of America's comedic canon.

This volume of plays, translated from the Italian by Mark Musa, opens with Six Characters in Search of an Author, in which six characters invade the stage and demand to be included in the play. The tragedy Henry IV dramatizes the lucid madness of a man who may be King. In So It Is (If You Think So), the townspeople exercise a morbid curiosity attempting to discover "the truth" about the Ponza family. Each of these plays can lay claim to being Pirandello's masterpiece, and in exploring the nature of human personality, each one stretches the resources of drama to their limits. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,800 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines.
