    Vincent Price Signed and Annotated "Diversions and Delights" Script. In the summer of 1977, during a period in which he reduced his film work in favor of the stage and voiceover work, Vincent Price began performing as Oscar Wilde in the one man stage play Diversions and Delights. Written by John Gay and directed by Joe Hardy, and set in a Parisian theater about one year before Wilde's death, Price (as Wilde) speaks to the audience about his life, his works, and his love for Lord Alfred Douglas, which led to his downfall. The original tour of the play was a success in every city that it played with the exception of New York City, and in the summer of 1979, Price performed it at the Tabor Opera House in Leadville, Colorado, on the same stage from which Wilde had spoken to local miners about art almost 100 years prior. This copy of the blocking script is dated November 11, 1977, is signed by Price on the cover, and and features copious handwritten annotations by Price throughout. In Very Fine condition with moderate wear to the cover from age and use. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
