GEORGE BERNARD SHAW
George Bernard Shaw signs a document detailing fees to be paid to Shaw based on receipts per performance.
Partly Printed Document Signed: "G. Bernard Shaw," 1½p, 8x10¼. (London), 1924 March 5. First sheet is headed: "Mr. Bernard Shaw's Plays./The Author's Fees for Professional Productions," detailing fees to be paid to Shaw based on receipts per performance. On verso, with words filled in (not by Shaw), in full: "Subject to the terms and conditions printed on the other side of this sheet I hereby license the Askrigg Shakespearean Players to perform You Never Can Tell at Askrigg on the 21st and 23rd April 1924." The plays of Irish dramatist George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) were characteristically instructional, often including a teacher role model, such as Henry Higgins in the popular Pygmalion (1913), which was later adapted as the musical, My Fair Lady (1956; film 1964). Shaw began writing plays in 1892. His first, Widowers' Houses, voiced his opinions on society and world reform. Throughout his 58 years as a playwright, Shaw, who received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1925, covered many topics, letting his humor speak for itself. His other major works include You Never Can Tell (1895), Man and Superman (1902), Major Barbara (1905), The Doctor's Dilemma (1906) and Saint Joan (1923). Lightly creased, else in fine condition.
