New York: Studio Duplicating Service, 1970.
Softcover. Playscript. Quarto. Mimeographed sheets in studio wrappers. Ownership signature of Michael Kasdan, the General Manager of the original Broadway production, as well as several lines struck through, and a word or two added, almost certainly in his hand, otherwise near fine. The corrections are reflected in the eventual text published by Atheneum in 1971. The script is dated "August-November 1970," several months before the first preview performance on March 15, 1971. Despite the original production lasting a total of only 54 performances, Colleen Dewhurst (who co-starred with Jessica Tandy) was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play, and won the 1971 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Performance. Referred to as Albee's "most important play yet" by Clive Barnes of *The New York Times*.
