It’s a gross Friday in these parts, but it’s also a certain playwright Walt McGough’s birthday, which makes the day infinitely better. To celebrate, today’s Friday Fifteen is all about plays. Here we go!
2. Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller
I spent the entire play hating Willie Loman and waiting for him to die.
3. The Tempest by William Shakespeare
Inspired a YA short story adaptation. Also “Those are pearls that were his eyes”—awesomeness.
4. How I Learned to Drive by Paula Vogel
What I imagine Lolita would feel like from Lolita’s point of view.
5. Wit by Margaret Edson
Stunning depiction of a prickly Donne scholar with cancer. Edson’s first play–the mind boggles.
