[nice tight copy, minor shelfwear and light soiling to bottom edge; jacket a bit edgeworn, one tiny tear and associated short creasing at top of front panel]. (B&W photographs) The play "portrays the events surrounding the attempt of a family of mountain people in East Tennessee to avenge the murder of one of the members of the family. [It] was originally written for television and was later adapted by the author for stage production. The television script is exactly forty-seven minutes long, following the rigorously confined standards for television plays. The action is limited to two sets, and the script is written for live television, rather than for film, giving it an immediacy for the reader sometimes lacking in film scripts. The stage script is much longer, and the student of theater can examine the processes by which the first play was expanded and its action extended for the stage version.
