from the manufacturer

This second volume of Arthur Millers collected plays opens with After the Fall (1964), his much-anticipated return to the theater after an eight-year hiatus. A tour-de-force exploration of guilt, responsibility, and history, the play opened a window on the playwrights marriage to the late Marilyn Monroe. Incident at Vichy (1964) dramatizes the round-up of Jews in Vichy France in a vivid single act. The Price (1968), a Broadway hit, follows two brothers, a successful surgeon and a struggling policeman, as they figure out how to dispose of their dead fathers belongings. The Creation of the World and Other Business (1972) and Up from Paradise (1974) treat characteristically grand themes in uncharacteristically comedic and musical forms. The American Clock (1974) is a vaudeville about the Depression years, while The Archbishops Ceiling (1977), set in a room in Soviet-era Prague that may or may not be bugged, is a meditation on trust and betrayal. The tele-play Playing for Time (1980) tells the story of the Womens Orchestra of Auschwitz. Here, too, are several shorter one-act plays and sketches-among them The Reason Why (1970), published for the first time-along with a selection of Millers introductions and other writings about his plays.
