I understand that Jon Fosse is the most performed living playwright within Continental Europe less so outside of Europe and worthy of consideration. If playwrights are being considered then a few others come to mind as well most notably Tom Stoppard. Arcadia is a masterful play that does not need to be seen performed to be appreciated.
Stoppard is usually fairly middling in the Ladbrokes odds, isn't he? I think he's written enough great works to be a serious contender. I agree that Arcadia might be his best. I taught it for the first time to students this year, and teaching a text is a great way to appreciate how good it really is. R&G Are Dead is also incredibly good.
