One-Act Plays 

Read these plays to celebrate that purity of intention that Wilder brought to the American theatre.
— – John Guare, 1997
Because so many of the plays we see nowadays are really suited to the small screen, it is easy to forget that a stage, no matter its size, can contain the cosmos. No one understood this better than Thornton Wilder, whose plays show us how to see the infinite in the utterly mundane.
— – Howard Kissel, New York Daily News
