Savages by Christopher Hampton (the one set in South America) Night and Day by Tom Stoppard in a double-bill with Hare/Brenton's Pravda Serious Money by Carol Churchill The Way of the World by William Congreve Athalie by Racine The Game of Love and Chance by Marivaux Egmont by Goethe Penthesilea by Kleist The Mayor of Zalamea by Calderon The Persians by Aeschylus
All, incidentally, plays I haven't seen except the Congreve.
I'd love to see Pack of Lies (Hugh Whitemore). Please, Santa!
Saw that a few years ago at Richmond with Lorna Luft. I really liked it. I watched the TV Film of it again recently. I really enjoy it because it's a true story and set really near me. (I watched another film about it too and I didn't like that much.) Would definitely watch a revival production!
"The Time of Your Life" by William Saroyan which won a Pulitzer Prize in the 1940s. There was a brilliant Howard Davies revival for the RSC 30 or so years ago. I'm not counting the fairly recent Finborough revival as it was seriously under-cast.
Actually if you scan the Pulitzer Prize for Drama winners there are quite a few on there I've never heard of at all, someone should start staging them.

I'd love to see Complicite revive their 1989 production of Durrenmatt's The Visit. One of the most stunning productions I've seen at the National. And they could still have Katheryn Hunter as Claire Zachanassian. There's an entirely new audience now for this. Failing that I'd be sort of interested in seeing the Kander and Ebb musical in London (not a revival I know).
