Miles Malleson : The Fanatics

'I have been reading a bunch of modern plays published by Benn. Some of them seem to me to be very good and to strike a very real and human note. What do you think of the "Fanatics"? It took me by the throat as an expression of what, in general terms, I also think. I'm not sure that it is a play, in the sense that it would be good on the stage. I have sent for two new plays by O'Neill — if there's anything else you think remarkable, you might tell me. One is apt to miss even outstanding things when one is guided only by reviews.
I read when I come home after lunch. I've had 6 steady hours of work and I'm tired, and besides it's too hot to do much. So I read myself to sleep, if I can, for an hour and then go on reading till it's time to swim.'

Century: 1900-1945     Reader/Listener/Group: Gertrude Bell      Print: Book
