June 27 marked a year since I began That Unforgettable Line, and I’ve posted information on 36 plays. I’m hoping to add 50 plays this next year! If you’ve found the blog useful in your studies or discovered a new play, or if you have a play suggestion for the site, leave a comment. Thanks.
Welcome to That Unforgettable Line, a contemporary play advisory blog! Some of you may recognize the source of the blog’s title, Winnie’s quote from Beckett’s Happy Days, “What is that unforgettable line?” The purpose of this blog is to introduce students to playwrights and plays they might not be aware of, and to suggest monologues and scenes that might be appropriate for class work. Hopefully, you’ll come across an unforgettable line that will make you want to explore the play further. Each post will include information about the play, snippets of representative monologues and scenes, and links to reviews and critical resources. My goal is to post information on 50, that’s right, 50 plays this summer, and add to the list weekly once the academic year begins.
