The Lottery
The Lottery
Drama. Based on the story by Shirley Jackson. Dramatized by Brainerd Duffield.

Cast: 8m., 5w., extras. This unusual play with its shattering last scene has proven so successful it is probably winning more contests presently than any other short play. Published originally in The New Yorker magazine, it produced an unprecedented reaction, and this dramatization captures the story that has become an internationally known classic. Like the story, the play starts as people are assembling for the lottery. What family will it be this time? Which member? Only gradually do we begin to suspect the nature of the lottery as the play builds swiftly to its crucial and moving climax. The tension and thrill of the play are built into its very structure. Bare stage. Approximate running time: 25 minutes.
