The Manchester Repertory Theatre - Fifty Years Ago and Today
David Scase, director of the Library Theatre, Manchester, speaks of his aims and what he understands by the repertory tradition.
How did Miss Horniman herself envisage the movement she and Iden Payne initiated? How did she work with her actors? These matters are discussed with Val Gielgud by two members of her original company at the Gaiety in 1908: Sybil Thorndike and Lewis Casson.

Mme. Tamara Karsavina, in conversation with Carl Wildman, recalls Jules Perrot's romantic ballet of the water-sprite which she danced in St. Petersburg. On October 27 Dame Margot Fonteyn is to take the name part in a new version at Covent Garden.
