The Late Christopher Bean

Written by
Sydney Howard

Performance April 5th & 6th 1956

At St. Phillip’s Episcopal Hall

 

By the acclaimed author of They Knew What They Wanted and The Silver Cord, this play opens some years after the death of acclaimed artist Christopher Bean with an excited world in pursuit of his work and any details they can gather about his life and character. Dr. Haggett and his family of patrican New Englanders, own some of Bean’s canvases and become avaricous when informed of their market value. It is Abby, the family servant, who ultimately overcomes them all: she possesses one of his greatest paintings which she cannot be persuaded into selling at any price.
