Night of January 16th. A Play.
Second edition, originally published as a soft-cover play edition in 1936. Night of January 16th is Rand’s most famous play, which had a successful run on Broadway during the 1935–36 season and was the inspiration for a 1941 film. Set entirely within a murder trial, it is perhaps most notable for the use of audience members as jurors who had the freedom to decide how the play would end each night.
