Content: The Circle Repertory Company records document equally the creative process and the business aspects involved with operating a repertory company, but it is predominantly a script collection. Scripts are divided into two main series: produced and unproduced. In most cases there are several drafts for each script, which may include annotated and prompt scripts. This collection is an important source of material on Lanford Wilson, Circle Repertory's founder and resident playwright. There is also a great amount of production material, including prop lists, costume plots, scene breakdowns, stage diagrams, lighting and sound plots, and cues, as well as a number of production photographs. Administrative records, including literary office reports, meeting minutes, and guidelines, illustrate the practical business of running a theater company. The collection, however, contains very little correspondence or personal information about the founders, members, writers, directors, or actors.
