This is an assignment I use as a daily class opener. At the beginning of the quarter/semester, I have a master calendar on which each student signs up for a different play and presentation date. The play titles I use are:
The Odd Couple, Arsenic and Old Lace, Twelve Angry Men, Pygmalion, Our Town, Rhinocerous, Master Harold and the Boys, The Glass Menagerie, The Importance of Being Earnest, A Doll's House, You Can't Take It With You, The Scarlet Pimpernel, Skin of Our Teeth, The Cherry Orchard, Major Barbara, Antigone, The Rainmaker, A Raisin in the Sun, Waiting for Godot, King Lear, Romeo and Juliet, Doctor Faustus, Uncle Vanya, Harvey, and Steel Magnolias.
Were I teaching high school rather than middle school, I would add titles such as The Crucible, Death of a Salesman, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, etc.
