About This Item

New York: N.p., 1952. Draft script for the 1952 play production. Copy belonging to actor Van Heflin, who starred in the Broadway production.

Set in the ward of a mental hospital, the play follows one of its patients, a theatrical director driven to attempted suicide by his domineering wife, Anne. Outwardly, Anne is sweet and caring, but beneath her docile facade is a vindictive manipulative side known only to her husband. Adapted into a 1955 film starring Jose Ferrer and June Allyson. The play opened on January 15, 1952 and ran for 161 performances.

Winner of two Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1952.

Red titled wrappers. Title page present with credit for playwright Kramm. 118 leaves, mechanical duplication. Pages Near Fine, wrapper Near Fine, bound with two gold brads.
