' The Valiant Blackbird '
Arranged for broadcasting by Jean Sutcliffe
by Eric Gillett
It was as the result of listening to the series ' Making Your Own Music ' that Eric Gillett conceived the notion of doing a similar thing for plays. In his talk this afternoon he is going to give some practical advice on play-reading round the fireside—what sort of plays to read, where to get them, and how much to pay for them. Many means of curing the black-out blues have been devised, but there are few better than the getting together of friends to enjoy some masterpiece of the theatre.
