Two Short Plays by Kenneth Sawyer Goodman breathes new life into Chicago’s historic Little Theater Movement. This illustrated edition of two of Goodman’s best-known plays, The Wonder Hat and Back of the Yards, recalls that Goodman—still well-remembered as a key figure in Chicago’s theater scene and the man for whom the Goodman Theatre was named—wrote and produced his own works before the influenza epidemic of 1918 cut short his life.
