Excerpt from Representative One-Act Plays by American Authors: Selected, With Biographical Notes This collection contains twenty-four of the most significant one-act plays of the Little Theatre movement in America. Some of them have not been previously printed; others have been out of print for some time or are inaccessible. I have made the collection in the hope that by bringing them to gether in one volume they will not be immediately lost. Although the war has for a moment scattered many of the Little Theatres and stunted the growth of the new play form, it is because the art is now at a pause that it may be more easily surveyed.

Conversation with family and intimate friends is somewhat in danger of becoming a little too informal, too laconic. Sometimes we take our own folks too much for granted. At its best, however, this is the acme of conversation, carrying the fullest meaning with least effort.-from "Social Conversation"This classic of developing confidence and poise when talking to absolutely anyone is full of sound, solid advice that is just as useful today as it was when it was first published in 1928. Two experts in public speaking-and private conversation-cover the full range of interpersonal communication: .at work: how to talk to your boss and your subordinates.in civic situations: how to communicate effectively at club and committee meetings.at home: how to enjoy personal conversations more.in public: giving a lively speech.The authors promise no "magic formula," just graceful guidance for becoming a more thoughtful and resolute speaker.JOHN MANTLE CLAPP (b. 1870) also wrote Doing Business by Letter and Language for Men of Affairs.EDWIN A. KANE was an instructor in public speaking at the College of the City of New York.

Excerpt from Representative One-Act Plays: By British and Irish Authors One-act Plays by American Authors, edited by Margaret Gardner Mayorga and published in 1919. The book was originally undertaken by Mr. Clayton Hamilton who, finding himself unable to continue the work, turned it over to the present editor. It is the duty of the present editor to record as editors have before him recorded - that Barrie and Shaw must be excluded from collections of this sort, for reasons which others have euphemistically described as limitations of copyright. One-act plays of Barrie and Shaw would have been made an integral part of this collection had the authors and their publishers seen fit to cooperate on a basis similar to that accepted by other authors and publishers; they did not, and the reader is therefore asked to fill in the breach as best he can.

Putting on a production can be confusing but with this helpful step by step guide you can guarantee a successful show from the first rehearsal to the closing night. Mr. Milton Smith’s competence for this work is made manifest in the first paragraphs of his first chapter in which he has set forth the fundamental duty of the play producer—to make alive and vivid on the stage the drama, tragic or comic, which in the study—that is, on the printed page—is only “an intellectual conception.”
