Audiences throughout the centuries have always been drawn to theatrical productions that feature criminal activity. Playwrights from Sophocles to Anthony Shaffer have been more than willing to satisfy those cravings with productions that feature an assortment of dastardly deeds. Never was this more apparent than in the 17th and 18th centuries, where crime lurked from stage left to stage right and every bloody spot in between.In Blood on the Stage, 1600 to 1800: Milestone Plays of Murder, Mystery, and Mayhem, Amnon Kabatchnik profiles near fifty works of theft, treachery, court intrigue, incest, and murder produced over these two centuries. Among the plays discussed in this book are The Beggar's Opera by John Gay, Horace Walpole’s The Mysterious Mother, Friedrich Schiller’s The Robbers, and George Lillo's The London Merchant, which was based on an actual case of murder. This volume also includes American plays such as The Prince of Parthia by Thomas Godfrey and William Dunlop’s The Fatal Deception. William Shakespeare is also represented with the classics Othello, Macbeth, and King Lear. Entries are presented chronologically, and each includes a plot synopsis, production data, opinions by critics and scholars, and biographical sketches of playwrights and key actors. Blood on the Stage, 1600 to 1800 will appeal to theater scholars, researchers, and any who immerse themselves in the genre of suspense, both in print and on stage.

In four volumes of Blood on the Stage, Amnon Kabatchnik examined more than 400 crime-themed plays produced in the 20th century. As any theater lover knows, however, depicting acts of wrong-doing is not a recent phenomenon. The stark, violent plays of Seneca in ancient Rome were followed by liturgical dramas of the Dark Ages that drew on both the Old and New Testaments. The golden age of Elizabethan drama boasted masterful plays drenched with treachery, bloodshed, and horror. In Blood on the Stage, 480 B.C. to 1600 A.D.: Milestone Plays of Murder, Mystery, and Mayhem: An Annotated Repertoire, Kabatchnik analyzes more than fifty blood-splattered plays that have withstood the test of time. Beginning with masterpieces like Prometheus Bound by Aeschylus, Oedipus theKing by Sophocles, and Medea by Euripides, this volume spans centuries of equally compelling dramas such as The Haunted House (200 B.C.), Phaedra (c. 60 A.D.), and The Killing of Abel (mid-15th century). Later works include Thomas Kyd’s The Spanish Tragedy, as well as several plays by Christopher Marlowe and William Shakespeare, notably The Tragedy of Julius Caesar and Hamlet. The plays in this book—a “prequel” to the other four volumes of Blood on the Stage—represent ancient Greece, ancient Rome, the Middle Ages, and Elizabethan England. The entries are arranged in chronological order and include plot synopses, biographical sketches of playwrights and actors, details about productions, and critical reception, if available. From the killing of Abel by his brother Cain to Hamlet’s revenge of his father’s murder, Blood on the Stage, 480 B.C. to 1600 A.D. provides a critical overview of some of the most significant dramatizations of criminal behavior.

"The entries are arranged chronologically, each containing a plot summary (often including significant dialogue), production and performance data, and opinions by critics and scholars. The book includes standards of the genre, highlighting representative works by prolific playwrights of the genre - works of enduring importance, singular innovation, or outstanding success."--BOOK JACKET.

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is a play which, as it were, takes place in the wings of Hamlet, and finds both humour and poignancy in the situation of the ill-fated attendant lords. The National Theatre production in April 1967 made Tom Stoppard's reputation virtually overnight. Its wit, stagecraft and verbal verve remain as exhilarating as they were then and the play has become a contemporary classic. 'One of the most original and engaging of post-war plays.'
