What are the best plays written in the last fifteen years?

I like to read plays, but I've only ever read modern classics--stuff by Williams, Miller, O'Neill, etc. I love Tony Kushner, but he's the only active playwright I'm familiar with (Besides Sam Shepard, who I don't much care for). Who else should I know, and which of their plays "read well" on the page, to a reader who isn't likely to see a stage production of the work?
