[Typescript]: Summer and Smoke
January 1947. Carbon typescript. Quarto. (4), 147, (1)pp. Sheets bradbound in the blue "Liebling-Wood" folder of Williams's agent, Audrey Wood. The light blue wrappers are moderately worn with wear to the extremities with tears and chips, the page ends are also worn, and the brads have pulled through the front wrap and part of the first page, about very good. The typescript for Williams's 1948 play about a refined minister's daughter from Glorious Hill, Mississippi, who falls for the unsophisticated young doctor who lives next door.This early version of the play, labeled "January 1947," is the one used during its first production in Dallas, Texas, in July 1947 by Margo Jones, before its New York debut in October of the following year. Though it ran for 102 weeks it was considered something of a disappointment as a follow-up to Williams's incredibly successful *A Streetcar Named Desire" which immediately preceded it. The play was revived in 1952 off Broadway with a now legendary performance by Geraldine Page as Alva, and was later made into a 1962 film directed by Peter Glenville with Laurence Harvey, Rita Moreno, and Page, who received an Oscar nomination for best actress.
