The American Place Theatre Presents Seduced by Sam Shepard
New York: The American Place Theater, 1979. 1st Edition. Quarto, photo-illustrated 3-panel gate-fold.
Program for iconic downtown playwright Sam Shepard’s 1978 full-length drama, based on the life of Howard Hughes, the infamously reclusive billionaire. One of Shepard's lesser-known works, Seduced comments on the the depravities of capitalism and avarice. It premiered in 1978 at Trinity Square Repertory Theatre in Providence and was subsequently produced off-Broadway at the American Place Theatre, a regular destination for Shepard's works, and was directed by Jack Gelber and starred Rip Torn. With full production notes. Some toning and edgewear. Very good. Item #6554
