The Blessed and the Damned is the title of two one act plays staged by Orson Welles in 1950. He wrote and starred in them.[1] Le Monde called the show a masterpiece of scenic art.[2] The performance included filmed elements.[3]

Ertha Kitt and Hilton Edwards were also part of the show.[4]

A photo of Welles and others discussing work on the show exists.[5]

The two plays were Time Runs and The Unthinking Lobster. Indiana University's Lilly Library has a playbill for the shows. The University of Michigan's archives acquired a script for The Unthinking Lobster.[6][7]
