Die drei Zwillinge - Regiebuch [ Manuscript ]
Berlin: Vbd. Deutscher Buhnenschriftsteller, 1919 Unique. A very good copy with some overall wear. 8vo.,. There are mtd. watercolors and photographs. An elaborate prompt book for the Weimar era farce ' Die drei Zwillinge ' one of the earliest productions of the very successful playwright partnership of Impekoven and Mathern. The play is 100 printed pages. Each leaf of the printed text of the play was carefully tipped ( along its inner margin ) on to a blank sheet. Each page of text is accompanied by elaborate stage directions and alterations or corrections to the text and has accompanying diagrams of the stage. Mounted as the frontis. to the volume is a large original watercolor of the stage design for the production at the theater in Dusseldorf ( it is titled : Dekorationsplan Schauspielhaus Dusseldorf ). The play was a pronounced success and there are accompanying mounted photographs of the stage for a production in Cassel ( at the Kleinen Theater ) in July 1920 and then at the Munich Volkstheater. The stage directions, designs, notes, and ammendments along with the mounted memorabilia comprise an elaborate and detailed prompt book. It is from the earliest period of the decade of experimental theater and cabaret in Germany; the play was staged during a year of tumult and revolution in the country. An exceptional artifact.
