Art Scene: A Play [unpublished script]

Art Scene: A Play [unpublished script]

Oakland, NJ: Sidney Kingsley, 1969. 123 leaves; 28 cm. Typescript with alterations taped over the original. "Script #3" written at upper edge of title page. American playwright Sidney Kingsley (1906-1995) won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for his first produced play, Men in White, in 1934. He went on to have a successful career writing plays and for television and film. In 1969 he announced that he was working on a trilogy to be called The Art Scene. The first play was focused on changes in the current art world and would employ paintings and sculpture by Kingsley himself. The other two parts would focus on modern dance and theater. The same year he copyrighted The Art Scene, Part One: Man with a Corpse on His Back. This script, simply titled Art Scene: A Play, is undated but presumably was created before he arrived at the title Man with a Corpse on His Back. Of interest in particular because of the many changes showing the work in progress. In Very Good Condition: title page is lightly soiled; otherwise, clean and solid. Very Good. Item #009225

Price: $135.00
