This collection is being published at a time where farces are coming back into fashion. The four plays in this collection are representative of Travers’ work at its best and most characteristic. The plays include the classic farces Rookery Nook (1926), Thark (1927), Plunder (1927) & The Bed Before Yesterday (1977). Several of these plays have enjoyed modern revivals, including Plunder in 1977 at the National Theatre, and Rookery Nook in 2009 at the Menier Chocolate Factory.
