Box and Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-Tung to his second Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Seascape, to the scintillating one-act comedy Counting the Ways (recently revived off-Broadway to great acclaim), and closing with the controversial Lady from Dubuque, which was hailed by Time magazine as a major work ...
