Raggedy Ann And Andy

Raggedy Ann And Andy

Author, playwright and screenwriter Max Wilk, co-writer of the screenplay for the 1977 Fox-distributed animated feature film Raggedy Ann And Andy, died Saturday at his Saugatuck Shores home in Westport, Connecticut. He was 90.

During several years living in London in the 1960s, he became involved with the Beatles’ Yellow Submarine project and was commissioned to write the novelization of the film.

Wilk was a long time dramaturg for the National Playwrights Conference. His work with the National Playwrights Conference at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center spanned nearly three decades.

While at the O’Neill, Wilk helped both emerging and established playwrights refine their plays, working with some of modern theater’s top luminaries, including Pulitzer Prize winners August Wilson and John Patrick Shanley, Lee Blessing, OyamO, James Yoshimura, Jeffrey Hatcher, Wendy McLeod, Doug Wright, Willy Holtzman, Judy GeBauer, Charles Shulman, Sam Hunter, Ursula Rani Sarma and Lucy Caldwell.
