VOL. FOUR, NO. 20



The theatre of the absurd is the most dynamic and controversial event in
contemporary drama. From precursor Michel de Ghelderode (April 28) to
avant-gardist Arthur Adamov (April 21), we backtrack in company with Blau,
Albee, Simpson, Beckett, Abel, UCLA panelists ad infinitum, and mad mon-
tages ad absurdum.

In observance of the anniversary of his death on April 23, 1616, we present
a day of memorial programming for Will Shakespeare, the greatest love poem
of all time, Anthony and Cleopatra. Altogether, we scattered a dozen dramas
between these April leaves.

We also wind our way through this Folio from Dickens to Desbarollda, with
a stopover in The Land of Green Ginger, on a train of delightful imagination
engineered by writer-director (and our cover artist) Noel Langley. Mr. Langley
received the Donaldson Award in 1938 for Edward Mv Son, and -adapted for
the screen The Wizard of Oz, Ivanhoe, and Tom Brown's School Days, among
many others.
