Comedy-Drama. Ketti Frings, from the novel by Thomas Wolfe. 10 m., 8 f. 2 exts. w. inset. An authentic American classic, this powerful and vital play captures the sardonic humor and the grief, both private and universal, of Wolfe's novel about a youth coming of age. Concentrating on the last third of Wolfe's story, the play vividly portrays Eugene Gant, his mother who is obsessed by her material holdings and who maintains barriers against the love of her family, the father-a stonecutter imprisoned by his failures, and the brother who never breaks away. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the New York Critics' award as best play of the season. Liist price $6.25. (Royalty, $50-$40 from Samuel French) Slightly Restricted.
