PENGUIN PLAYS




THIS PAGE 'PL' PL1 - PL100





The first 'Plays' book published was in the Main series no. 117 as a red covered book Famous One Act Plays. That was in November 1937. There followed several other books of plays, including a whole selection of works by George Bernard Shaw. While the Main series gave birth to Pelicans, and to 'Penguin New Writing' from No. 305, and Pelican Specials led to Penguin Handbooks, it was only in 1959 that Penguin decided to create a separate PLAYS series.

The separate series of PENGUIN PLAYS was launched with G. B. Shaw's The Doctor's Dilemma as 'PL1', which was originally published as Penguin No. 564 on 26 July 1946 as part of a uniform set of 10 volumes of Shaw's work. The Penguin Plays series went on to incorporate the 'New English Dramatists', which were included in the series from 1959 with volume PL32. Various cover designs have been used, the first 47 titles (PL1 - PL47) give a "curtain effect".
