FUNNYHOUSE OF A NEGRO: A Play in One Act.
Edition: Early printing, a slim booklet.
New York: Samuel French, Inc. (c 1969). The first play to be produced by this African American playwright; it opened off-Broadway in 1964 and won the Obie Award for Distinguished Play (sharing the award with Amiri Baraka's Dutchman). Considered as part of both the Black Arts Movement and the Theater of the Absurd, this takes place in Sarah's mind, allowing the audience to witness the alienation of being a black woman in the United States, as Sarah struggles with her mixed ancestry. 24 pp plus 8 pp ads.
