The first, second, and third series of THE PROVINCETOWN PLAYS contain the plays presented as the first, second, and third bills of the Provincetown Players 1916-1917 season. The paper-bound pamphlets sold for fifty cents apiece, and while they found few buyers, they brought the Provincetown Players their first significant attention from the press. In addition to BOUND EAST FOR CARDIFF, the FIRST SERIES also contains THE GAME, by Louise Bryant, and KING ARTHUR'S SOCKS, by Floyd Dell.
