Ruth Wolff (playwright)

New York: International Famous Agency, 1969. Draft script for an unproduced play from noted playwright and screenwriter Ruth Wolff. From the estate of actress Monique van Vooren.

Wolff, a prolific and successful playwright since the late 1950s, is best known for her historical and biographical plays about famous women. "The Abdication," one of Wolff's most regarded plays, was first produced at the Theatre Royal Bath in 1971, which she adapted for film in 1974, under the direction of Anthony Harvey, and starring Liv Ullmann and Peter Finch. Wolff also wrote the screenplay for Richard Fleischer's 1976 film on Sarah Bernhardt, "The Incredible Sarah," starring Glenda Jackson and Daniel Massey.

World renowned actress Arianne Devoe returns from a shoot in Australia, with Nicky, a rugged Australian in tow, much to the chagrin of the men in her usual New York entourage, Rafe, the charming, but inveterate gambler, Douglas, the sturdy industrialist, and Sky, the sweet African American concert pianist, all of whom are utterly besotted with her.
