The Sisters Rosensweig

New York: Harcourt Brace & Company, 1993. 1st Edition. Octavo, publisher’s indigo cloth over indigo paper-covered boards, spine gilt, original illustrated dust jacket.

Stated first edition of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Wendy Wasserstein's award-winning comedy. Revolving around the lives of three middle-aged Jewish-American sisters who reunite in London, the play’s original production featured an all-star cast of Frances McDormand, Madeline Kahn, and Jane Alexander. Wasserstein later affirmed that The Sisters Rosensweig is "about being Jewish" and that she wanted to write a play "that celebrated the possibilities of a middle-aged woman who, unlike her other protagonists, does not end up alone." Illustrated with black-and-white photos of the debut performance. Dust jacket illustrated by theater poster designer James McMullan. First printing, with complete letter row to copyright page. Fine in unclipped dust jacket. Item #5803
