Excerpt

All these plays have been played at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin. The Words upon the Window-pane has been revived several times, The Cat and the Moon once, but Fighting the Waves, which drew large audiences, not at all, because Mr. George Antheil's most strange, most dramatic music requires a large expensive orchestra. A memory of that orchestra has indeed roused a distinguished Irish lyric poet to begin a dance play which he assures me requires but a tin whistle and a large expensive concertina. The Resurrection was played for the first time at the Abbey a few days ago. Like The Cat and the Moon it was not intended for the public theatre. I permitted it there after great hesitation. Owing perhaps to a strike which has prevented the publication of the religious as well as of the political newspapers and reviews, all is well.
