Ostrovsky is the second greatest Russian playwright next to that one guy who wrote The Cherry Orchard. Ostrovsky's plays are still performed with as much regularity as that other guys' plays as well in Russia. This British edition contains four well-known Ostrovsky plays in a decent translation (so I'm told by a native Russian speaker) and is worth seeking out as an introduction to this master.
