It's a source of frustration for most drama critics and theatre professors that some of our best-loved plays are rarely or never produced. High on my list of plays I'd kill to see: Karel Čapek's The Makropoulos Case, Antonin Artaud's Jet of Blood, John Ford's The Broken Heart (which features theatre's most gruesome wedding scene), and any number of French and English melodramas that have fallen from favour. I'm a sucker for spectacle and for scripts that pose great scenographic difficulties. How do you make that bosom teem with milk? How do you stage a wedding with a corpse?

How about it Mirror readers? Any neglected plays you would kill to see here in Boston?
