The thirties through the fifties represent a great period of American theatrical history. The influence of and reaction to the Great Depression is evident in the work of William Saroyan. The forties saw the talent of three great playwrights emerge who dominated the theater, Tennessee Williams, Arthur Miller, and Eugene O'Neil. The 1950s saw many of these plays brought to the screen and enjoy a wider American audience. Treat yourself to an evening of theater with actor Stephen Collins as he performs a variety of monologues from some of America’s best loved plays.
