* WINNER! 1975 Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best American Play  (Ed Bullins) 

The Taking of Miss Janie tells the story of a decade as the youth of this generation undergoes their individual experiences. Bullins's play presents a group of college students who struggle to find their place in society. While some of the characters face the problems of interpersonal relationships, others try to find a viable way to cause social and political change. Everyone begins the decade with hope, energy, and a sense of purpose; however, these qualities are quickly diffused as they each confront their personal responsibility for whatever change comes next. - http://www.samuelfrench.com/p/9759/taking-of-miss-janie-the
