Directed by Judith Malina, designed by Julien Beck, written by Jack Gelber, and with music by Freddie Red, the Connection followings a theatrical producer and writer as they attempt to stage a play following the lives of various drug addicts and inhabitants of the New York Demi-monde. The play consists of conversations between the characters as they wait around to score. It won three Obie awards in 1959-1960, including best new play, best all-around production, and best actor. This flyer is likely from the first production in 1959 at the Living Theatre.
