Renowned American playwright Neil Simon is best known for his commercially successful comedies, such as The Odd Couple (1965) and Biloxi Blues (1985), among many others. Opening at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre on Broadway on November 27, 1973, The Good Doctor ran for 208 performances. The University of Delaware’s Resident Ensemble Players production of The Good Doctor opened on March 31 and closes May 14, 2011.

In this exhibition, three versions of the script from the University of Delaware Library Special Collections’ Richard Hoffman — Neil Simon collection are on display: a first draft dated “Spring of 1973,” a final draft dated November 27, 1973, and an undated copy of the screenplay which was produced by the Public Broadcasting Service in 1978 starring Edward Asner, Richard Chamberlain and Marsha Mason.

This single case exhibition was originally on display in the Morris Library Information Room from May 2-15, 2011.
