In my reviews I try neither to persuade nor to dissuade others. I believe the art of reading is a very personal experience and that my opinion should not intrude upon others enjoyment. I merely state how I felt while reading and I will allow others to decide for themselves. This is why I will not present a play-by-play description. I will only offer a few basic details to help you decide if what I present is worth your time.
Three Plays - Ayn Rand Three Plays by Ayn Rand

Night of January 16th ****

Ideal ****

Think Twice *****

The first play is a murder trial in which the audience (or the reader) determines the verdict. (This play was actually produced this way in the early 1930's)

The second is an example of "objectivist" principles as a woman accused of murder tries to "escape".

In the third we are witnesses to a murder and investigation in which all the suspects have a clear and strong motive.

I highly recommend the play Think Twice for any amateur sleuths out there. It is a very clever murder mystery!

You should have figured out the murderer (and motives) by the first act. ;)

If you love Rand's philosophy then the plays are like "mother's milk" if the very least they will help explain her goals and thoughts for the world. ;)
