Farrar Straus & Giroux, 1966. Item #26276
ALFRED, William. HOGAN'S GOAT. NY: Farrar Straus & Giroux, . 8vo., cloth in dust jacket. First Edition. This is the personal copy of Albert Shipley- a supporting member of the cast during the play's original Off-Broadway performance at the American Place Theatre, New York City, in November, 1965. Faye Dunaway played the lead role of "Kathleen Stanton" in the play and her performance in this role is generally considered the one that launched her career. This copy is signed by Faye Dunaway and 32 other cast members. A remarkable copy, Dunaway's signature is the largest at the bottom of the cast list- see pages [x and xi]. Also with signatures, including Alfred, director Frederick Rolf, and actors Conrad Bain and Ralph Waite, who played the lead role, on the opposite blank page. Shipley has signed the front endpaper and affixed a small snapshot of himself (in costume?) and his blindstamp bookmark. Shipley's personal calling card is inserted and page  has been annotated with a correction noting the play was first staged on October 19 rather than in November. Early in her career Dunaway was appearing in a number of productions at the Lincoln Center Repertory Company but eventually she left after director Elia Kazin quit the company. She subsequently landed the lead role in this play and caught the eye of producer Sam Spiegel. This led to her first film appearance in "The Happening." Near fine (small stain fore-edge); very nice ($4.95 price is present on the front flap) d/j. $750.00.
