But it's impossible to say anything about today's human beings without the
connection of these beings to yesterday's people, the day before yesterday's
people, and people who were always there; it's not possible to avoid the eternal
topics. Art is most importantly the ... modern of playwrights. When we performed
King Lear, we spoke mostly about ourselves, about us as fathers and about us as
children, about our fathers with whom we might have had conflicts, and about our
fathers who ...

We can do nothing to change our yesterdays, but we can do something about our
tomorrows, said an American statesman recently. 1n Africa we clearly were
incapable of mastering our destinies yesterday; we seem to be unwilling even to
face the challenges of today. We simply resign ourselves to our adversities and
lie wallowing in our indolence, blaming others for our plight. Many are the
popular theatre enthusiasts working in Africa today who abandoned the
mainstream theatre or ...

We are two distinct theatres, almost a mile apart, which together make up a single
artistic force. For over ten years we have been driven by our passion for our art
form, our love of our city and our unswerving belief that theatre at its best can
enhance lives. While our two performance bases could hardly be more different,
they are united by our commitment to brilliant, humane, forward-thinking theatre
that responds to its time and place. Our mission is to reflect the aspirations and ...

Friday,25. June. 1915. Ten hoursin theatre setting out instruments and sterilizing.
Called away during eachof my three meals to talk to Lieutenant Dawson – rather
hard! Got permissionto go into the town. Wonderful hot bath after seven days' dirt.

yesterday expressed astonishment at the transformation we have effected in four
days. He saw the filthy unpromising place the day before our arrival.

The theatre was the only recreation we had during the first six months of our
sojourn in London ; and Mr. ConUs' box was always at our service ; not that I

corner of the pit tier, and might do very well for him to spy Miss Mellon from, but
came very little up to my ideas of to see and to be seen, or the pleasure of going
to the theatre. These were the days of Mrs. Siddons and of Mrs. Jordan ; and oh,
how joyous ...

become a rich man. But wel A thousand performances, and a thousand times we'
ve swallowed the dust of the changing stands for our theatre. Yesterday we
performed in the Kremlin, the day before yesterday for a club of Assyrian gypsies,
today in a factory. We always come, an hour before the show begins, into an
empty and generally unswept auditorium, in order to set up the booth beforehand
