Street Scene images

The Northampton Drama League's first production was by the American playwright Elmer Rice. Street Scene first opened at the Playhouse Theatre, New York, in January 1929 and it won Rice a Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

The play follows the lives of a number of people living in a New York neighbourhood.

The Northampton Drama League's production was staged a year after the film version, which was adapted by Rice, produced by Samuel Goldwyn and directed by King Vidor.

A Broadway musical version, with music by Kurt Weill, followed in 1946.

The Northampton Drama League was later known as the Northampton Drama Club and was then renamed Masque Theatre.
