Hare, David, 1947-. Papers, 1968-1993.

Papers, 1968-1993.

The David Hare papers consist of typescript drafts (many with holograph revisions), notes, rehearsal scripts, schedules, production notes, correspondence, theatre programs, a poster, clippings, brochures, resumes, photographs, page proofs, and published texts associated with Hare's plays, teleplays, screenplays, and essays, as well as foreign-language translations of Hare's works; works by other authors; extensive personal correspondence; as well as materials relating to Hare's theatre group activities, all ranging in date from 1968 to 1993. All of Hare's stage plays, teleplays, and screenplays from the beginning of his career through 1991 are represented in some form and, along with articles, essays, lectures, and some unpublished works, form the bulk of the collection. Hare's involvement with the Portable Theatre Group, Joint Stock Theatre Group, and the Royal Court Theatre is also reflected in the collection. Hare's work as a director is represented by typescripts, correspondence, and production material from plays by Tony Bicât, Howard Brenton, Trevor Griffiths, Christopher Hampton, and Snoo Wilson. Correspondence is a strength of the collection, and letters, notes, cards, postcards, and telegrams from friends, relatives, colleagues, actors and actresses, other directors, a variety of theatre companies, and theatrical, political, and academic organizations may be found. Notable correspondents include Hare's agent Margaret "Peggy" Ramsay; his editor Frank Pike at Faber and Faber; his accountants at Midgley, Snelling, and Co.; directors Max Stafford-Clark and William Gaskill; actress Kate Nelligan; and playwrights Trevor Griffiths, John Osborne, and Michael Weller.
