In that same year Rice had written another play , Black Sheep , which did not hit the boards until 1932. Perhaps it was just as well . Unlike The Adding Machine , which enjoyed a moderate success , Black Sheep was a financial disaster .

A thorough and detailed study of this playwright's remarkable long and productive career that stretched from 1914-1963, and included over 50 plays and a Pulitzer Prize. It establishes that Rice'e impact on the American theater probably surpasses that of any other American playwright.
