The collection consists primarily of scripts, schedules, memos, correspondence, notebooks, programs, research files, stage manager's reports, contracts, plans, photographs, publicity material, clippings, and ephemera relating to the Chicago, San Diego, London, New York, and television productions of the play. Several versions of the script for the play are available in the production files, including the original 1988 version and the shooting script for the 1991 PBS American Playhouse television broadcast. General papers include photocopies of research materials, production materials for unspecified productions, and other materials on Steppenwolf Theatre Company. Of particular note for all the productions, are the backstage "contest" materials. These consist of cartoons, limericks, and various humorous competitions in which the cast and crew participated. The Broadway production is the most thoroughly documented, since it had the longest run. Oversized materials consist of sections, an elevation, and floor plans for the Chicago production. The overall arrangement of the production files corresponds to file headings used by Ewen. Some materials have been restricted because they contain personal information.
