New York: Samuel French, 1931. Hard Cover. Very Good binding. Item #4309

Octavo. [8], 308 pp. Third printing. Issued in gray/green cloth that has faded fairly evenly to light brown; titled in gold on the front cover and spine; a nice copy with light shelfwear, only. A fantastic presentation copy inscribed by actor and playwright, Luther Adler to actor Frances Farmer on behalf of The Group [Group Theatre], a New York based theater collective that included such luminaries as, Lee Strasberg, Elia Kazan, Cheryl Crawford, Sidney Lumet, Anna Sokolow, Clifford Odets, and Paul Green, the author of this present collection of plays. November 4, 1937 at the Belasco Theatre, Adler and Farmer co-starred in one of Group Theatre's more successful Broadway productions, Odets's "Golden Boy." That production opened a few months after this book was inscribed (August 1937); one might surmise that it was a gift from Adler to Farmer thanking her for agreeing to be involved. While it was a short-lived collective (1931-1941), Group Theatre had a lasting impact and its members--during and after--went on to help shape American theater and film.
