BURMESE DAYS. A Play by William B. Kellogg From The Novel By George Orwell. Stock code: 12657


Original Typescript. 1950


Typescript. Perfect bound in card wrappers with blue bordered typed label to the upper cover. A play in three acts with character descriptions. 116 mimeographed pages, the text on rectos only. Hand corrected / altered in black ink throughout. In very good condition, the binding a little rubbed and marked, the contents with some silverfish erosion to the edge of the blank front endpaper and tanning to the text block edge otherwise clean. Almost certainly unique.




An early adaptation of George Orwell's novel for the stage. We have been unable to find any information pertaining to the author (perhaps a pseudonym?) or evidence of the play in this form ever making it to production.
