Vintage original 22 x 14” (56 x 36 cm.) window card poster, minor wear at extreme blank edges, near fine.   Washington, D.C.:  David Merrick, Sept. 28-Oct. 15, [1966].
Poster for a monthlong tryout for this play by Hugh Wheeler, adapted from one of Jackson’s most famous (and harrowing) works of fiction, with its overriding theme the persecution of people who exhibit “otherness,”  The play, despite having the great director Garson Kanin at its helm, was undoubtedly very strong stuff for the Broadway audience of its time, and it only lasted for a week there.
