Publisher's Summary

This collection features three Pulitzer Prize-winning plays:

The Heidi Chronicles
This Pulitzer Prize and Tony award-winning play is the tale of a baby-boomer's long hard road from 1960s confusion to 1990s self-made woman...or so she hopes.

The Young Man From Atlanta
In 1950s Houston, an affluent couple is transformed by tragedy when their son dies under mysterious circumstances and the husband loses his job of 40 years. Shirley Knight recreates her Tony-nominated performance in this 1995 Pulitzer Prize-winning drama.

Anna Christie
The passion of a coal barge captain's daughter and a handsome sailor takes a tumultuous turn when secrets from her past are revealed. Nobel Laureate Eugene O'Neill won the second of his four Pulitzer Prizes for this heroic classic.

    "Absolutely Extraordinary"

    This collection and its sequel are absolutely two of my favorite audible purchases of all time. I bought it for the Eugene O'Neill play, which I would now say is the weakest of the six, but still good. I can't recommend this collection highly enough. The other LA Theatreworks productions are good too, but the Pullitzer collections are as good as it gets.

    "The Heidi Chronicles Shines, Nothing Disappoints"
    What made the experience of listening to LA Theatre Works the most enjoyable?

    The quality of the works.

    The Heidi Chronicles was simply sensational: funny, pointed, insightful, perfectly cast and refreshingly balanced.

    The Young Man From Atlanta perhaps lacks suspense, but makes up for it in brilliantly fashion, subtly discussing social and sexual attitudes by not actually having them discussed (it makes sense when you hear the play trust me).

    Anna Christie was an enjoyable romp, not a life changer, but a great way to spend and hour.


    What did you like best about this story?

    For The Heidi Chronicles it was the sheer believability. The characters have their extremes and the troupes of each era/character type are explored, but in an intelligent and ultimately moving fashion. You'll feel like you've have known the characters for 20 years by the play's conclusion, and you'll be saddened to leave their company. Incisive but affectionate, a study of women in the Baby Boomer generation that's flexible mixing feminism, comedy and realism, without having any one element undermine the others. Strangely heart breaking, and utterly brilliant.

    The Young Man From Atlanta is all about what goes unsaid. You get to fill the judgemental emotional void, and drawing your own conclusions is essential to this play's success.

    Anna Christie a breeze.

    Great value for money.

    I focus on fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, science, history, politics and read a lot. I try to review everything I read.

    "Great Plays, enjoyable listen"

    I really liked this collection. I did not expect to like the Heidi Chronicles but I loved it. The performances were great. The Young Man From Atlanta was also very good, but had a few lackluster performances. Anna Christie was excellently performed and was quite enjoyable. These were three plays which were new to me and really worth the listen. I really like listening to these LA Theatre Works selections and have more in my queue and plan on getting more. I had feared listening to stage theater on audible would be dry or boring, but these plays were totally engaging.
