Apparently the Ramchal wrote several plays.

  1. What are they about?
  2. Where can I find full text (I found Migdal Oz here - preferably translated?
  3. Have Gedolei Yisroel discussed how to approach these works? i.e. should they be treated as Torah or simply as plays?

I'm not sure what you mean by 3. Do you mean a Mesorah? – Double AA Mar 1 '12 at 20:36
@DoubleAA right, see my edits, let me know if that helps. – none Mar 1 '12 at 20:45
You say he wrote several plays, linking to a page, but I only see one play, "Maase Shimshon", listed at that page, unless you're counting "Maamar Havikuach" as a play. You mention "Migdal Oz", but that page, at least, doesn't indicate that that's a play. – msh210 Mar 1 '12 at 20:58
fair point. migdal oz is certainly a play as you can see from the link and as indicated here - I was told verbally that the Ramchal wrote others but have not found a list of them online – none Mar 1 '12 at 21:05
The site you link to for "Migdal Oz" does, however, have "Maase Shimshon", a play, also. (I can't vouch for the site's accuracy of reproduction) – msh210 Mar 1 '12 at 21:06
