Comedy. By Joseph Robinette. From the novel by John Jay Osborn, Jr.
Cast: 8m., 9w. (extras.) From one of the most popular novels and movies of the last decade comes a stage adaptation which gives new immediacy and excitement to the story of a first-year Harvard Law School student and his quest for the prestigious degree. We become intimately involved with the people who were so much a part of this world: the unforgettable, icily brilliant Professor Kingsfield; his beautiful, intriguing daughter Susan; and members of the study group. All the action takes place on a simple unit set, and the continual flow of the fast-paced action will delight the beginning as well as the experienced director. Critics have called The Paper Chase "rich... imaginative... moving and remarkable," and that's how your audience will find this play. Unit set.
