REVIEW Our TownThe Skin of Our TeethThe Matchmaker READ & DOWNLOAD ô Our TownThe Skin of Our TeethThe Matchmaker Thornton Wilder ✓ 1 READ & DOWNLOAD Three of the greatest plays in American literature collected in one volume This important new omnibus edition features an illuminating foreword by playwright John Guare and an extensive afterword for each play drawing on unpublished letters and other uniue documentary material. I loved Thornton Wilder s The Long Christmas Dinner especially the way he managed to use the essential unreality of the stage to telescope time so that generations pass before our eyes partaking essentially of the same Christmas dinner So it was with considerable excitement that I picked this book up at a second hand bookshopI am sorry to say that it was somewhat of a let down Wilder uses the same techniue of breaking up the illusion of verisimilitude that the proscenium stage provides which essentially makes the viewers into voyeurs peeping into someone else s reality through the fourth wall and this is his intention Fed up with the traditional methods of how plays are produced acted and directed the playwright here makes sure that a realistic approach to his play is impossible He does this through minimal and stylistic stage settings stylised performances shifts in time back and forth and the direct interaction of the characters with the audience Two of the plays also contain a stage manager who talks to the audienceNon realistic plays are the norm in the traditional theatre of the east so I have no problem relating with that in fact the stage manager here is a direct relative of the Sutradhara of the Sanskrit plays what spoilt the experience for me was the techniue applied across three plays proved too much of a good thing I liked Our Town The Skin of Our Teeth mildly and by the time I got to The Matchmaker I could not finish it But partly I think the fault lies within me These plays are very hard to visualise and are ideally meant to be seen and not readSo three stars
