My Year in Review 2013: Plays

This is the first time I've ranked the plays I've read in a year, but in the past most of the plays I read were Shakespeare's with just one or two others thrown in for good measure. However, this year I finally finished all of Shakespeare's plays and made a concentrated effort to read more classics that I'd missed. I'm not an avid theatre-goer (I would be if I ever lived in a place where theatre was a regular thing) and I know that reading them is an entirely different experience, but it's an experience nonetheless.

From least favourite to favourite (none that I really hated):

10. Tony Kushner- Angels in America
9. William Shakespeare- Henry VIII
8. Euripides- Medea
7. William Shakepeare- Pericles
6. George Ryga- The Ecstacy of Rita Joe
5. Ann-Marie MacDonald- Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning, Juliet)
4. William Shakespeare- Love's Labour's Lost
3. Oscar Wilde- The Importance of Being Earnest
2. Molière- Tartuffe
1. Tennessee Williams- A Streetcar Named Desire
