Three acclaimed works for the stage by Doris Lessing, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature Written from 1950s to the 1970s, the three plays collected here reflect the social and political concerns of the times, and are rich with Doris Lessing's characteristic passion and incisiveness. 'Play With a Tiger' follows the fortunes of Anna and Dave, representatives of the emerging post-war classless society, and their attempts to find a blueprint for living. 'The Singing Door', written for children, is a highly experimental play, a clever and witty allegorical study of power games. 'Each His Own Wilderness' tells the story of Myra, who has fought all her life for the socialist ideal, and who must now come to terms with the fact that despite her best efforts, her son is indifferent to her politics.
