47 Workshop

47 Workshop
   The famous extracurricular laboratory to foster the writing of new plays was an offshoot of Professor George Pierce Baker's English 47 class at Harvard University. After initiating the study of plays as literature at Radcliffe and Harvard, Baker encouraged his students to write their own plays, and the workshop allowed them to experiment with the transfer from page to stage. Among those who took his courses were George Abbott, Sidney Howard, Eugene O'Neill, Philip Barry, and Edward Sheldon. Sheldon's Salvation Nell became the first play from the workshop to be produced professionally when Minnie Maddern Fiske staged it in 1908.
