Excerpt from The Insurgent Theatre
IN this book it has been my purpose to treat the recent events in the non-commercial theatre as these refer to organization and management. I have purposely made no attempt to deal with the literary aspects of plays written for and produced by the so-called insurgent theatres. This mat ter would raise a large and interesting set of questions, which are not, in my judgment, while the plays are in a condition of development, ripe for present treatment. Those who are interested in play lists will find repertories of the theatres represented in this book in the Appendix. I wish to express my gratitude to the directors of theatres and companies for the courtesy with which they have provided me with information. I am under particular obligation to Miss Helen Arthur, Mr. Sheldon Cheney, Mr. Charles Recht, and Mr. G. P. Baker for general material, and to Mr. John B. Andrews for information as to child-labour laws as they apply to the theatre. Thomas H. Dickinson.
