[Playscript]: Oedipus by Seneca

(London): [National Theatre Company] / (Printed by Franell Enterprises, 1968).

Price: $6,500.00

Softcover. First edition, revised draft, later working script (unpublished). Quarto. [2], 12, 12, 9, 12, 8pp. Bradbound light blue unprinted wrappers, featuring a die-cut window on the front wrap, with mimeographed interior pages, printed on rectos only, and control number ("32") on first page. Near fine with a couple of stains at the bottom of the front wrap and light edgewear. Inscribed on the title page in the form of an original 12-line poem by Ted Hughes to publisher Richard Gilbertson. A copy of the second revised script written by Turner for the National Theatre Company production in London during the winter of 1967-1968, and greatly revised by Hughes (and prompting him here to void Turner's contractually required credit line). The text differs in many respects from the first rehearsal script. *OCLC* locates three copies. A rare playscript accompanied by a wonderfully whimsical poem to his publisher and friend. *Sagar and Tabor* A16b.
