On the literary and artistic landscape of the 1930s the Group Theatre is a feature of outstanding importance. Robert Medley, the distinguished painter and designer, and a close friend of Rupert Doone, played a vital part in the creation and history of the Group Theatre, which, under Doone’s direction, staged virtually all the new verse plays that emerged from this most exciting decade of the century. Amongst these were: Sweeney Agonistes by T. S. Eliot; The Dance of Death, The Dog Beneath the Skin, The Ascent of F6 by Auden and Isherwood; MacNeice’s Out of the Picture and Spender’s Trial of a Judge. For most of these plays the young Benjamin Britten wrote the music.  Condition: Some light shelf-wear to dust-jacket. light spotting to edges of text block,  otherwise very good
