Elmer Rice, The Iron Cross, copyright 1965

Regular price $5.50

The Iron Cross by Elmer Rice is a conventional and realistic indictment of war--World War I--a characteristic protest by its author.  Robert Hogan has provided an enlightened introduction for the play.

Accepted for production shortly after the Broadway success of On Trial in 1914, its producer eventually dropped his option. According to Robert Hogan, editor,  The Iron Cross had its only performance at the Comedy Theater in New York on February 11 and 13, 1917 by an amateur group and has never been revived or published--until Proscenium Press started its "Lost Play" series, (this play is No. 1), no date provided. Rice copyrighted his work as "an unpublished dramatic work" in 1915, 1943 and 1965.

This copy is a stapled paperback of 48 pages measuring 5 1/5 inches by 8 1/2 inches. It is in firm condition with no tears or marks, a little faded at the spine and signs of handling.

This book ships First Class!
