Three Farces and a Comedy by Ben Travers

In a writing career of over 60 years, Ben Travers is regarded as the master of the 'Aldwych Farces'.

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, Plunder in 1977 at the National Theatre, and Rookery Nook in 2009 at the Menier Chocolate Factory.
