David Garrick's accomplishments as an actor, manager, and theatrical innovator brought him great fame and fortune, and his ideas influenced not only his own age but succeeding ages as well. Yet as a playwright, a part of the elegant combination of talents that was David Garrick, he has never achieved the critical reputation he richly deserves, in main because of the unavailability of texts and the lack of proper assessment of the historic importance of his plays in the English theatre.

This first complete edition makes available to scholars and students all the plays of Gar­rick in well edited texts, with commentary and notes. The two volumes of Garrick's own plays published together here include the twenty-two plays of the Garrick canon attributable to him. Garrick's claim to serious consideration as a playwright rests upon these plays, written between 1740 and 1775. They are not all mas­terpieces, but their inclusion here, arranged in chronological order, will enable the stage his­torian to assess Garrick's progress as a dramatist.

Contents: Cymon. A Dramatic Romance, 1767; Linco's Travels. An Interlude, 1767; A Peep Behind the Curtain; or, The New Rehearsal, 1767; The Jubilee, 1769; The Institution of the Garter; or, Arthur's Roundtable Restored, 1771; The Irish Widow, 1772; A Christmas Tale. A New Dramatic Entertainment, 1773; The Meeting of the Com­pany; or, Bayes's Art of Acting, 1774; Bon Ton; or, High Life above Stairs, 1775; May-Day; or, The Little Gipsy, 1775; and The Theatrical Candidates, 1775.
