night music♫ -- "I wasted time and now doth time waste me"
Admittedly not all of the plays are excellent, but the good ones are so very, very good that this has to be 5 stars.

Plays in this book semi-ordered by my appreciation (highest on top):
- Equus
- Amadeus
- Five Finger Exercise
- White Liars
* Preface
- The Royal Hunt of the Sun (some sock-puppetry but many great lines)
- Shrivings
- The Public Eye
- The Private Ear
- Black Comedy (a farce which probably works better seen than read)
