Creative Team

Jerome Lawrence & Robert E. Lee (Playwrights)

Read More

Jerome Lawrence (1915-2004) and Robert E. Lee (1918-1994), whose collaboration spanned more than fifty years, were among the most prolific teams of playwrights in the history of the American theater. Since its 1955 Broadway premiere, their Pulitzer-nominated Inherit the Wind has been translated into 34 languages and celebrated for its continuing relevance. Among their other major stage works are The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail, the play and the film of First Monday in October, Auntie Mame, and the books for the musicals Mame and Dear World. Lawrence and Lee were inducted into the Theatre Hall of Fame in 1990 and that same year became members of the College of Fellows of the American Theatre at the Kennedy Center. In addition to receiving recognition for their work in the theater, they have also been honored for their contributions as writers for radio, television, and film. In an effort to encourage new work for the stage and to honor the Dallas producer who gave Inherit the Wind its first production, they created the Margo Jones Award in 1961 and co-founded the American Playwrights Theatre a few years later. In 1986, the Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee Theatre Research Institute was established at Ohio State University. The Institute houses an outstanding and growing collection of memorabilia and personal papers of theater artists from all over the world. Dedicated teachers of playwriting, Lawrence and Lee hoped to communicate to their students a passionate belief that the theater must deal with ideas and issues of social significance. “All of our plays,” they wrote, “share the theme of respecting the dignity of the individual, and our perpetual battle against limitation and censorship.”
