' Dramatic Convention and the Play of Macbeth'
Mr. MORDAUNT SHAIRP
Mr. Mordaunt Shairp is the author of two plays that have achieved success on the London stage: The Crime at Blossoms and The Green Bay Tree, both subtle analyses of the psychology of character that succeed within the modern dramatic convention. In this talk he analyses, from the modern dramatists' standpoint, the character given to Shakespeare's 'Maebeth ' by its use of the dramatic conventions of the Elizabethan theatre; blank verse that painted a scene, described an action or conveyed a thought : contrasted use of prose and verse : a stage halfway between classical formalism and modern ' peep-show ' naturalism. His contention that no play is completely comprehensible unless presented in the type of theatre for which it was written, throws an interesting challenge to the modem producer and actor who follow him in discussing the way this masterpiece should be presented to-day.

Sir ARTHUR SALTER , K.C.B.
(after Edgar Allan Poe )
' In this Xo-man's land, that lies somewhere between fact and fancy, only the perilous explore. Those of you who prefer the friendly light of day should venture no farther. For such a tale as we now must toll is assuredly not yours.' In these words Poe gives fair warning to the timid that the House of Usher is no place for them. But for the perilous who delight in Poe's mastery of the macabre, and in his power to treat of the most fantastic imaginings in an orderly analytic fashion, there is promise of thrilling entertainment ir. the broadcast version of the most famous of the ' tales of death.' Listeners will remember that this play was announced fol production last September, but was postponec owing to an accident to the producer.
