Preferred Abstract (Original):

The study also explicates the theory of art that inspires, and, guides , the writers of this new trend ( e.g., Brenton, Hare, Barker, Edgar, Bond, McGrath , Arden and Griffiths ), and evaluates their view of the function  of drama , and the dramatist , in society and their concept of theatre which undoubtedly  informs the structure of their writing in plays that , by critical consensus, are regarded as their best
