Clifford Odets’ 1950 play in which the title character, Georgie, is married to actor Frank Elgin, once a great theatre star, now down on his luck. When Frank is offered a major role by hotshot director, Bernie Dodd, he has the chance to make a major comeback.

For The Record:

“The Country Girl” opened on Nov 10, 1950 at the Lyceum under the auspices of Dwight Deere Wiman.  Clifford Odets directed a cast which included Uta Hagen, Paul Kelly & Steven Hill.  It was last revived on B’way in 1972, featuring George Grizzard, Jason Robards & Maureen Stapleton.  John Houseman was the director.
