A Book Of The  Play


The Man Who, Having Witnessed And Enjoyed The Earliest Performance Of
Thespis And His Company, Followed The Travelling Theatre Of That
Primeval Actor And Manager, And Attended A Second And A Third
Histrionic Exhibition, Has Good Claim To Be Accounted The First
Playgoer. For Recurrence Is Involved In Playgoing, Until Something Of
A Habit Is Constituted. And Usually, We May Note, The Playgoer Is
Youthful. An Old Playgoer Is Almost A Contradiction In Terms. He Is
Merely A Young Playgoer Who Has Grown Old. He Talks Of The Plays And
Players Of His Youth, But He Does Not, In Truth, Visit The Theatre
Much In His Age; And Invariably He Condemns The Present, And Applauds
The Past. Things Have Much Degenerated And Decayed, He Finds; Himself
Among Them, But Of That Fact He Is Not Fully Conscious.
