Millay, Edna St. Vincent


Millay, Edna St. Vincent
(1892-1950)
   Most remembered as a poet, Edna St. Vincent Millay wrote several plays from the time of her acting apprenticeship with the Provincetown Players in 1917. Her theatrical reputation is based almost entirely on a one-act play, Aria da Capo (1919), first produced by the Players, a work that became one of the most frequently produced one-acts of the early 20th century. Millay's few other plays include The Princess Marries the Page (1918) and The Lamp and the Bell (1921), and her libretto for the Deems Taylor opera The King's Henchman (1927).
