Picnic by William Inge ( the film is one of my all time favourites)
Doubt by John Patrick Shanley. I saw it in New York last year and want to see it again and again. Loved it!!!

As for unashamed entertainment, it's high time we saw some good old melodramas again. Does anyone remember a fabulous production of Dion Boucicault's Streets of London at Her Majesty's some time before Phantom (another melodrama) took it over? And I loved Paul Giovanni's take on Sherlock Holmes, The Crucifer of Blood: a real audience-friendly thriller, full of stage magic and satisfying plot twists, that had a long run at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in the 70s or 80s.

It is a bit slow and rather wordy, but ultimately rewarding, although not my my favourite Ibsen.
I would like to see classy revivals of
A Family Reunion,
The Real Lady Macbeth,
Night and Day,
Out on the Lawn.
And who could see that the road would twist

It would be nice if Ibsen enthusiasts like me could trade in a few Doll's Houses or Hedda Gablers for more productions of of his lesser-known plays. I'll never forget being bowled over by discovering gems like Little Eyolf (done by the RSC a few years back) and The Lady from the Sea (Almeida). These late plays of Ibsen all seem to have a rich undertow of symbolism and near-mysticism that puts them in a higher league than most of his other work.
No idea how I came to miss When We Dead Awaken at the Almeida in the 1990s. I have seen Rosmerholm - can't recall where - Young Vic 1990s maybe.

There are several Shakespeares I've never seen and I'd be happy seeing any of them.
Madness of George III
Rutherford & Son
No Man's Land
oh, sod it, I'll have to stop there - I just realised I could go on all day.
