Claire & Paul Sifton wrote many socially relevant plays together during the 1920s & 30s and spent their lives fighting for social causes. John Howard Lawson was one of the premiere playwrights of the early 20th century. His plays were frequent staples on Broadway until he became one of the infamous Hollywood Ten during the McCarthy hearings.

For the first time in over 75 years, three of the famed Group Theatre plays are now back in print! Foreword by Estelle Parsons, Legendary Actress and Oscar Winner Introductions by George Bartenieff, life-long actor and teacher, and Allie Mulholland, Artistic Director of the ReGroup Theatre.

"Let's give thanks to Allie Mulholland and his ambitious ReGroup Theatre, which airs plays that the Group Theatre produced in its decade-long history. ReGroup is quickly becoming one of the town's most valuable troupes." --PETER FILICHIA

"I've been greatly impressed with Allie Mulholland and his ReGroup Theatre and in the ways they've brought forward and give life to the forgotten Group Theatre Plays." --JEFFREY LAWSON
