One-Act Play Collection 014

1 - The Lover by Gregorio Martinez Sierra


Audiobooks Genres



Here, in our 14th collection, are 10 One Act Plays for your enjoyment. They range from the farm to the courtroom to the palace throne room; from the time of suffragettes to the (at the time) far distant future of 1999; and two of them have the word "sweet" in their titles. Short gems to make you laugh, cry, think, or all three. NOTE: Although the plays here were all published before 1923 and hence are in the Public Domain in the U.S., Floyd Dell died in 1969 and that play may not yet be in the Public Domain in some countries. - Summary by ToddHW
