Publisher's Summary

Published together for the first time are three of Ayn Rand's compelling stage plays. The courtroom drama Night of January 16th, a 1935 Broadway success famous for leaving the verdict to the audience, is presented here in its definitive, final revised text - a superb dramatization of Rand's vision of human strengths and weaknesses.

Also included are two of Rand's unproduced plays: Think Twice, a clever philosophical murder mystery, and Ideal, a bitter indictment of people's willingness to betray their highest values, as symbolized by a Hollywood goddess suspected of a crime and fleeing the authorities.

The most brilliant plays I have ever experienced

Genius harmony of philosophy, romance and drama expertly narrated. Sometimes solemn but ultimately triumphant narratives.

Great Find

After reading her more famous works, I started searching for additional writings as many fans of Ayn Rand often do. Finding these plays was like uncovering a treasure. Though they can be difficult to listen to, the narration is very good and the content is excellent.
