Written in 1967 and set one year later, The Price depicts a family betrayal played out by two brothers who came to adulthood during the Depression. After sixteen years’ estrangement, they reunite to clear a Manhattan brownstone full of family furniture. Long-held rivalries, resentments, and delusions surface.

Artist Stan Washburn has added illustrations that depict a set for the play, following the playwright's directions that the room be progressively seen. In eight drawings Washburn scans an attic piled with furniture and gives the reader views of various distinct pieces that form a contiguous series.
