Mamet's play premiered in May 1992 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, starring William H. Macy and Rebecca Pidgeon. Loosely based on the Thomas-Hill Hearings of 1991, the play starred Macy as a university professor accused of sexual misconduct by one of his female students, played by Pidgeon, who one critic described as "Mamet's most fully realized female character...a mousy, confused cipher." Macy would reprise his role in Mamet's own 1994 film adaptation, starring opposite Debra Eisenstadt. The play finally opened on Broadway in 2009, starring Bill Pullman and Julia Stiles.

White wrappers, dated 1991 and 1992, with a credit for playwright Mamet. Title page present, identical to front wrapper. 65 leaves, mechanically reproduced. Pages Fine, wrapper Fine, plastic ring bound.
