Famous plays That are acceptable in an AP class?

Can anyone tell me (a) famous play(s) that ISNT SHAKESPEARE? I would also like one that is of literary merit. For example, "Streetcar Named Desire".

    What about "A Street Car Named Desire," it is the play I'm reading for my AP Lit class. It doesn't have difficult language like shakespeare, in fact, it is much more modern. I believe it takes place in 1930's or something like that. There is also a movie on it, yet it is full of symbolze and deep themes.
