Offset color lithograph, circa 1972. 245x480 mm; 9 3/4x19 inches, wide margins. Signed and numbered 30/50 in pencil, lower margin.

This lithograph was produced by Bearden to support the 1973 production of Ed Bullin's House Party: A Soulful Happening at the American Place Theater in New York. Bearden would go on to create the "visual environment" for the play and Ed Bullins served as the Playwright-in-Residence at the American Place Theatre in 1973. An unnumbered and untitled impression is illustrated in Mary Lee Corlett's From Print to Process: Graphic Works by Romare Bearden. Corlett pl. 40, p. 73; Fine p. 231.
