[light shelfwear to bottom edge, slight dent in bottom edge of front cover; jacket shows some wear at extremities, a few tiny tears (no paper loss)]. (3 B&W photographs) Play set in a German prison camp during World War II, based on the authors' personal experiences. While confined together in the real Stalag 17, their activities included operating the camp theatre, making sets and writing scripts for their productions. "It was after curfew one night that they lay hidden in the makeshift theatre, and rather than risk their lives attempting to return to their bunks, they began writing what later became [this play]." Billy Wilder adapted it (with co-writer Edwin Blum) for his 1953 film of the same name, starring William Holden.
