The Michael Klinger Papers are an enormously valuable resource for scholars, researchers and the merely curious. They contain thousands of documents, including personal correspondence, financial and legal information for his various productions, scripts for realised and unrealised projects, publicity material and artwork. This section contains a selection of informative or amusing oddities from this vast collection. More documents will be added as they become available.
