Description

Most text in German. Certain dialogue in the play reads in English and Spanish. Purple pen markings: note on title page reads “Weihn. 30.” could be Weihnachten (Christmas 1930). Note on “Erster Akt.” (page 3) also reads Jan. 31. Symbol found in blue, red, and black pencil, purple and pink pen; possibly all markings from same performance.
Repeated note, "Vorschlag" (suggestion) found in margins in black pencil throughout the book, seems mostly to accompany pencil strikeouts of dialogue. As found in other prompt-books, red and black pencil used together to strikeout large sections of dialogue.
Most markings concern dialogue changes, amendments, and emphasis. Markings at beginning of each act usually concerned with music, stage setup, etc.
