Description
Modern Armenian Drama presents seven classic works from the Armenian stage. Spanning over a century (1871-1992), the plays explore such diverse themes as science, religion, socioeconomic injustice, women's emancipation and political reform through the medium of all the major European dramatic genres. Highlighting Armenia's most esteemed playwrights, this anthology includes the following plays:

Pepo (1871)                                         Gabriel Sundukian
Honorable Beggars (1880)                  Hagop Baronian
For the Sake of Honor (1904)             Aleksandr Shirvanzade
Ancient Gods (1908)                           Levon Shant
Nazar the Brave (1923)                       Derenik Demirchyan
Unfinished Monologue (1981)              Perch Zeytuntsyan
Madmen of the World, Unite! (1992)    Anahit Aghasaryan

Nishan Parlakian and S. Peter Cowe provide a comprehensive introduction to the history of Armenian drama, giving a valuable overview of its importance and development in Armenia. A preface to each play provides a brief biography of the playwright and places the work within the context of historical and cultural issues of the time.
