The Zoo Story is definitely the most potent play in this collection, explicit in a very subtle way, but the collection as such is fairly lackluster: while The Sandbox and The Death of Bessie Smith seem more of straight-forward, not-very-inspired sketches than full-pledged, stand-alone plays, The American Dream just does not hit the mark for me 4/5.
