Uncle Tom's cabin : or, Life among the lowly ; a domestic drama in six acts by George L Aiken( Book )

4 editions published in 1858 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin was appropriated for many stage productions. This dramatization by George Aiken is one of the most famous and borrowed much of its dialogue directly from the novel. Many of the "Tom Shows," as they were known, were not so faithful to the story and often featured demeaning caricatures of the black characters and fueled negative stereotypes of black people, helping to leave the novel with the mixed legacy it has today
