Of course, there is also Tom Stoppard's _Coast of Utopia_ Trilogy,
written for one-day or consecutive-day performance.

I saw "The Cyclops" at the London Theatre Museum near Covent Garden.
Cartoon-y costumes with Stuffed Fabric Parts.    It was a university
production and came with a scholarly program which is somewhere among my
piles of keepers.  I would look for the program, but I'm about to leave
for a playwrights' retreat at Ohio State U....

Any SHAKSPERians at OSU at the moment?

This is most probably the case for Neil Simon's autobiographic trilogy,
_Brighton Beach Memoirs_, _Biloxi Beach_, and _Broadway Bound_.

Unfortunately, whoever put together the DVD set of the four Alien movies
was unfamiliar with the term tetralogy. It's called "Alien Quadrilogy".
