Excerpt

So that lastly we may arrive at the chief reason for going into this question.

A DURABLE THEATRE

"I am in the hearts of all. Memory and Knowledge and the loss of both are all from Me. There are two entities in this world, the Perishable and the Imperishable. All creatures are the Perishable and the unconcerned One is the Imperishable."

BHAGAVADGÎTÂ.

What is a Durable Theatre? We shall have to imagine one as none exists.

First of all it would contain a durable Drama. Not a number of fairly durable dramas; one Drama, unchangeable. Such a drama would have to be beyond criticism, and would have to be what they assert the Shakespearean drama is----for all time. To be more durable than the Shakespearean drama it is likely that it would have to be religious. Religious dramas, if not played in London or New York, are still alive and being enacted in many quarters of the globe, and have lived for very many centuries. Perhaps not because of the religions themselves, but because of the vitality and nobility in the works.

A glance at the history of the Drama will give you examples, But it is more than likely that if we to-day in the twentieth century produce a drama we shall want it more durable than any of those.
