Typescripts, often with manuscript corrections, of plays by Joe Corrie., [Circa 1930]-1965, undated.

Identifier: MSS.26490-26520

Scope and Contents

Most of the typescripts are undated, and relatively few have been published. Some of the one-act plays were written for amateur drama groups competing in Scottish Community Drama festivals. Joe Corrie sometimes wrote more than one play with the same plot, and he would alter an act of a longer play to make it a one-act play in its own right. He also adapted some of his stage plays for broadcasting.
