I'll third Voyage and second Candida. They sound interesting and similar to Hamlet53, they are the two I haven't seen before.


Nominations so far:

Glengarry Glen Ross by David Mamet [3]
The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams [4]
Voyage by Tom Stoppard [3]
Candida by George Bernard Shaw [2]
Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead by Tom Stoppard [3]


There is about a day and a half left for nominations.

I'll use my last nomination to third Candida. I like Shaw because he always has a lateral take on his subjects and this play sounds very interesting.

I nominate the first play in Tom Stoppard's Coast of Utopia trilogy, Voyage.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Coast_of_Utopia

The Coast of Utopia trilogy is about the philosophical debates in prerevolutionary Russia between 1833 and 1866.

The ebook is available from Kobo and Amazon for $7.99.
I'm not seeing it at kobo, and I only see the PDF at Amazon. Is it available in EPub in the US?

[Edit] I was referring to Glengarry Glenn Ross. Is Glengarry Glenn Ross available as an EPub?

uh, back from catching up with work after the holidays - probably it is too late for a fresh nomination, but I will try nonetheless: so my first nomination is Ibsen's Peer Gynt - here is the blurb from Amazon:

"Peer Gynt was Ibsen's last work to use poetry as a medium of dramatic expression, and the poetry is brilliantly appropriate to the imaginative swings between Scandinavian oral folk traditions, the Morrocan coast, the Sahara Desert, and the absurdist images of the Cairo madhouse. This translation is taken from the acclaimed Oxford Ibsen. John McFarlane is Emeritus Professor of European Literature at the University of East Anglia, and General Editor of the Oxford Ibsen. "
There are various free versions available, e.g. here.

As for my other two nominations, I'll fifth "Candida" and I will fourth "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead".

Peer Gynt looks very interesting, but I've already used all my nominations.

Bookworm_Girl, both Candida and The Glass Menagerie are already fully nominated so you still have all three nominations left to use.


Nominations through post #29:

Glengarry Glen Ross by David Mamet [3]
The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams [5]
Voyage by Tom Stoppard [3]
Candida by George Bernard Shaw [5]
Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead by Tom Stoppard [5]

Peer Gynt by Henrik Ibsen [4]
