Typescript for The String-Game
ca. 1963-1964. Owens' 30-page typescript for the play The String-Game, with an accompanying autograph note signed by Julian Beck of the Living Theatre, dated in 1984, explaining that Owens had given him the typescript during the 1963-64 season when the Living Theatre was shut down by federal authorities, while the production of Owens' play Futz was in rehearsal. According to Beck's note, "We never -- or rather -- haven't yet produced any of Rochelle's work tho the possibility still exists." Futz, when it was finally produced in New York, won an Obie Award, one of three that Owens won. The script and the note are fine, in a three-hole binder. An original script by one of the leading American avant garde playwrights of the 20th century, with distinguished provenance. [#033189] $850
