Series VI: Scripts and Works by Other Authors

Scope and Contents note

These materials were found in two or three discrete groups among Kopit's papers. Many are pieces by authors Kopit had worked with or was expecting to work with. Some appear to be unsolicited and some may be by current or former students of Kopit. While most of the works are plays or books for musicals, there are a handful of manuscripts of novels and nonfiction works as well.
