About The Good Minute

This is a typed draft of Caldwell’s play, “The Good Minute.” In his author’s note he states “In its present form, this play is probably too long for two actors and an audience to sustain. I estimate that its playing time exceeds two hours and fifteen minutes. But I cannot begin surgery until I know better what it succeeds and fails for others. I welcome your comments.”
