  Online College Courses has published a great list of 50 Classic Plays Every Student Should Read that should prove interesting reading for visitors of The Drama Teacher. Divided into Greek, Shakespeare, older classics, modern era and newer classics, the list (numbered in no particular order of priority) includes wonderful plays.   My favorite book is a drama play called Tartuffe that was written by Moliere or Jean- Baptiste , this comedic play was first performed, however, due to major issues with the storyline the play was cut short.

  Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, better known as Molière, wrote more than 30 plays, every one of them a hundred times more witty and insightful than the movie “Molière.”.   It is said that English is the language of Shakespeare, and that French is the language of Molière. Molière is indeed the most played and most widely read French author of comedies. His plays.
