Plays included in this collection: The Big Bun, The Inventor of the Horse, and War. Campanile's plays combine the visual slapstick of silent cinema with the zany humour of the Marx Brothers and the nonsensical dialogues of Ionesco; the result is a funniness quite unique in this century, laughter as spontaneous and as visceral and direct as it is subtle and clever. The works translated here were written in the 1920s and the early 1930s, well before the first inklings of the theatre of the absurd.
