This is a Souvenir Program of the Drama, which was presented in connection with the 350th anniversary of the founding of the first permanent English colony in North America. This was a historical outdoor drama, produced by The Jamestown Corporation in Co-operation with the Commonwealth of Virginia as the official drama of the Jamestown Festival of 1957. It was performed at the Cove Amphitheatre on the Campus of the College of William and Mary. Linda Lavin performed in this drama. Paul Eliot Green (March 17, 1894 - May 4, 1981) was an American playwright best known for his historical dramas of life in North Carolina during the first decades of the twentieth century. He received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for his 1927 play, In Abraham's Bosom. This was included in Burns Mantle's The Best Plays of 1926-1927. He wrote The Lost Colony which has been produced since 1937 near Manteo, North Carolina and the historic colony of Roanoke. Its success has resulted in numerous other historical outdoor dramas being produced; his work is still the longest-running. Green created a new dramatic form that he called symphonic drama. Inspired by historical events, it incorporated music and pageantry, usually for outdoor performance. His first experiment in this form was Roll Sweet Chariot (1934), which ran on Broadway. He helped Richard Wright adapt his novel Native Son for the stage in 1940. First edition. Stated as First Season, 1957. Bookseller Inventory # 58208
